New API functions?
« on: June 09, 2017, 03:21:53 PM »
Hi, i want to use the function SetConsoleDisplayMode, but is not defined in the kernel32.inc file. So what should i do to use that function?  :eusa_snooty:

Very old function but...

include \masm32\MasmBasic\MasmBasic.inc      ; download
  Init
  Dll "Kernel32"
  Declare void SetConsoleDisplayMode, 3
  SetConsoleDisplayMode(rv(GetStdHandle, STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), CONSOLE_FULLSCREEN_MODE, 0)
  Print Err$()
  SetConsoleDisplayMode(rv(GetStdHandle, STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), CONSOLE_WINDOWED_MODE, 0)
  Inkey Err$()
EndOfCode


Output:
Code: [Select]
Funzione non supportata dal sistema in uso.

So is in fact an old dll that is omitted in the new windows versions?  :shock:

This is not a dll, it's an add-on over kernel, to include these prototypes you need Inc and Lib files - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms686028(v=vs.85).aspx
You can try to load the library manually, with
       
LoadLibrary
GetModuleHandle
GetProcAddress

Or you can manually register a prototype - SetConsoleDisplayMode PROTO STDCALL :DWORD,:DWORD,:DWORD

Try the attachment. You can't get any closer, since the console misbehaves - no fine-tuning with MoveWindow, unfortunately.

include \masm32\MasmBasic\MasmBasic.inc      ; download
  SetGlobals rc:RECT, py
  Init
  Dll "Kernel32"
  Declare void SetConsoleDisplayMode, 3
  SetConsoleDisplayMode(rv(GetStdHandle, STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), CONSOLE_FULLSCREEN_MODE, 0)
  Print Err$()
  SetConsoleDisplayMode(rv(GetStdHandle, STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), CONSOLE_WINDOWED_MODE, 0)
  Print Err$()
  ClearLastError
  invoke SystemParametersInfo, SPI_GETWORKAREA, 0, addr rc, 0
  invoke GetSystemMetrics, SM_CYCAPTION
  neg eax
  mov py, eax
  add rc.right, 6
  add rc.bottom, 6
  invoke MoveWindow, rv(GetConsoleWindow), -6, py, rc.right, rc.bottom, 1
  Inkey "better: ", Err$()
EndOfCode


Output:
Code: [Select]
Funzione non supportata dal sistema in uso.

better: Operazione completata.

You will not get it. It's simply impossible for any Windows version starting with Vista. My code shows an approximation, but it remains a window... no full screen.

Even Microsoft don't get it wrong all of the time, the console in Win 10 64 bit can be set at full screen and its a lot faster than even the console in Win7 64.

Yes, but in windows 8.1 it doesn't.

I use ALT ENTER for full screen, and again to leave full screen. It works since XP.

It works in XP and Win10, but not in Win7.
