Re: Limited or Full Color Support



fixed

Nice on the image background!

Now consider how odd we could make a screen - PC5250 can have a different background color for each color - I don't even WANT to consider the possibilities!

Actually, our emulator (available as part of our Wintouch and ThinView
products) allows you to even have a background image. Which is something
I came up with mainly in self-defense: I could easily have emulation
sessions open on a dozen different systems at once, and God forbid I do
something on the wrong one!

And in fact, you can play around with background colors on a 3489, which
can be very useful for determining at a glance which "side" of the
terminal is active: I have the usual black background on session 1; a
dark green for 2, a dark blue for 3, and a dark brown for 4. And if you
split the screen between two sides, the active split and the status line
both show the correct background color, while the inactive split shows a
fifth background color.
