Do an Intuition-integrated MakeVPort() of a screen.


Source position: intuition.pas line 3250

function MakeScreen(

  Screen: PScreen





Address of the custom screen structure

Function result

Returns zero for success, non-zero for failure. Probable cause of failure is failure of MakeVPort().


This procedure allows you to do a MakeVPort() for the viewport of your custom screen in an Intuition-integrated way. This way you can do your own screen manipulations without worrying about interference with Intuition's usage of the same viewport.

The operation of this function is as follows:

After calling this routine, you should call RethinkDisplay() to incorporate the new viewport of your custom screen into the Intuition display.

Note: Intuition may determine that because of a change in global interlace needs that all viewports need to be remade, so it may effectively call RemakeDisplay().
