    Curious behaviour of Console_SetScreenBufferSize function

    Hi,

    I encounter today a curious behaviour of Console_SetScreenBufferSize (xSize, ySise) function.

    When the row count (ySise) is 24 or less the console window is full height of the screen
    and the specified columns count ( xSize) is ignored arbitrary set to 80

    Is it a bug or a feature ?
    In the second case should be specified in help on that function

    o
    A second thing :

    After creating a console window with good columns and rows size (rows number > = 25) , when I move it on desktop using mouse drag on window title bar,
    the console window is resized 80cols x 25 rows, regardless of previous size specified in Console_SetScreenBufferSize

    Curious no ??


    Cordially

    Dany

    Note : the spelling of ySise is from help file

    Hi Dany,

    thanks a lot for the questions. I will be glad to have a peek - however, could you please share details about your operating system, for easier verification?


    Thank you,

    Hi Petr,

    Included : control panel/system screenshot.

    My initial wish was to create a three lines console to monitor a data gathering program running in background all day long.

    The function is a wrapper of https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...reenbuffersize.

    Yet - I understand and we will add this information to the thinBASIC documentation.
