QBasic Tutorial 26 - Screen Coordinates - QB64

http://www.SchoolFreeware.com Screen 13 will be used within this tutorial. Screen 13 has a resolution of 320 x 200. The tutorial in the old QBasic Tutorial Series, regarding coordinates, was wrong. The old tutorial had screen coordinates of: (0, 0) (0, 200) (320, 200) (320, 0) Since the starting coordinate is 0,0 that means that the math equation of n - 1 needs to be used. So, the farthest coordinate for Screen 13 is (320 - 1, 200 - 1) which gives us (319, 199). The correct coordinates for each corner, of Screen 13, is: (0, 0) (0, 199) (319, 199) (319, 0) Many books and educational institutions incorrectly teach that the ending coordinates match the screen/window resolution. For example: MSDN http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb203919.aspx PSET will place a pixel at a specified coordinate and color.
