Pascal Graphics Mode

What commands do I use to get some graphics commands to work - _moveto_, _lineto_ etc. I tryed:

uses Graph;

But thats not it. Also tryed

uses InitGraph;

but it can't find the procedure.

I'm using TP7 for DOS.


Thanks,

You must use
uses Graph;

If you want to use some of the functions of Grsph, you must type the correct name for every procedure.

For example:

MoveTo( 10, 10 );
LineTo( 20, 20 );

This moves the 'cursor' to (10,10) and draws a linef from this point to (20,20).

If you want to learn more graphics-functions, just get help in TP7.

Thanks for that Michael, but it didn't work.

After I run the program [ctrl-F9] it says:

BGI Error: Graphics not initialized (use InitGraph).

And after I include InitGraph in "uses" it says:

Error 15: File Initgraph Not Found.

you need to add the folowing:

procedure init;
var gp,gm:integer;
begin
  gp:=detect;
  initgraph(gp,gm,'c:\tpascal\bgi\');
end;

chang the c:\tpascal to your drive and root directory but leave the \bgi\
