A Mac Paint Simulator in Basic

By Mike Steiner, Sierra Vista, AZ, MacTutor Contributing Editor

MacPaint Functions in Basic!

The program, written in Microsoft BASIC, accompanying this column simulates some of the features of Macpaint. “Why,” you are probably asking yourself, “would anyone want to simulate Macpaint in a BASIC program when every Macintosh comes with Macpaint at no extra cost?” The reason is that transferring a Macpaint picture to a BASIC program is not the easiest thing in the world to do. Having your own Basic version of MacPaint can be very helpful. [The real reason is the challenge! And Mike has succeeded admirably. -Ed]

Here are some of the problems of trying to mix picts with Basic: After making the picture, you have to copy it to the clipboard (which limits you to the size of the Macpaint window, thus eliminating the ability to make a full-screen picture) before entering BASIC. Once in BASIC, you then have to transfer the picture from the clipboard to the screen. If you want to use the picture again, you have to save it as a disk file. The program with this article will let you draw a picture, save it to and load it from a disk. The routine that loads pictures from disk can be incorporated into your own programs to let you convientiently use pictures in them.

Program Notes

The program is fairly straight forward and does not use any programming “tricks;” everything used is documented in the Microsoft BASIC manual. However, it requires a 512K Macintosh . A 128K Mac does not have enough memory to handle the necessary arrays and heap requirements.

Instructions are incorporated into the program and are accessable via the Instructions option in the Options menu. There is one area where operation of the program differs from the standard and bears mentioning here. When you save a picture to disk, you are not limited to saving the entire picture. You must select the section of the picture (to include the whole picture if you want) as the first step in the save process.

How it Works

The program starts by CLEARing memory from the data segment to increase the application heap memory. The heap is where BUTTON, EDIT FIELD, and PICTURE information are stored. Without the increase of heap memory the program results in a system error 25 (out of heap space) whenever it tries to print a picture.

The program then performs a GOSUB to init, which is the initialization routine. This routine causes all variables to default to integers unless they are declared otherwise. (The only other variable format used is string variables.) The program then DIMensions the arrays it will use and generates the drawing window and the program menus. It then dispays the names of the program and programmer and the version and date. (This display is also available by selecting “About...” from the File menu.) It then initializes variables and the cursor arrays and RETURNs to the main program.

The routine called start is the main routine of the program. All subroutines eventually return to start. While in the start loop, the program enables drawing and checks for a menu selection. The loop sends the program to the subroutine cursorposition. This subroutine monitors the position of the cursor on the screen and changes the cursor to an arrow when it is outside the drawing window and changes it to a cross when inside the window. Note the statement “dummy = MOUSE (0)” preceding the GOSUB. References to MOUSE (1) through MOUSE (6) return values related to the most recent click of the mouse button. MOUSE (0) checks for a mouse click, so even though it is not needed by the cursorposition routine, it must have been referenced for the routine to work. The ‘ON shape GOSUB’ line sends the program to the appropriate drawing routine, depending on what shape has been selected to be drawn.

Drawing Shapes

The routines box, roundbox, and oval are essentially the same routine, differing only in the Quickdraw routines they use. They first check to see if the mouse button has been pressed. If it has not, the routines RETURN to start. If the button has been pressed, the routine enters a loop that first goes to a subroutine called getpoints. Getpoints determines the coordinates of diagonally opposite corners of a rectangle. It assigns the top left corner as the start and the bottom right corner as the end, putting the coordinates in the variable array “rect.” Control is then returned to the shape-drawing routine where the shape is drawn twice and getpoints is entered again. Because the penmode was set to 10 (XOR) before the routine was entered, the pen reverses the color of the screen it passes over; by drawing the shape twice, the shape continually draws and erases itself. When the mouse button is released, control is returned to the drawing program where the pen mode is set to 8 (copy) and the shape drawn once again to leave it on the screen. The routine then RETURNs to start.

The straightline routine is similar to the framed shape routines except that starting and ending points are not swapped to insure that start is to the upper-left of finish, and a straight line is drawn. The subroutine called free is the simplest of all. It continually draws a line to the current cursor position from the previous cursor position after moving initially to the point where the mouse button was pressed.

Text first sets the text mode to 1 (OR). A bug in the quickdraw routine that draws text puts blank spaces after the text that is printed. These spaces will erase any black pixels that are close to the end of the text. Setting the text mode to OR eliminates this problem. The routine then sets the selected text size. The first time the routine is entered after it is selected, when the mouse button is pressed, the left margin is set at the cursor's horizontal position. Text is entered normally, and when the Return key is pressed, text continues on the next line at the left margin. You may change fonts, size, and styles of the text while entering it without losing your character's position on the screen. A carriage return uses the current left margin as the left margin. To change margins, move the cursor to where you want the margin to be and click the mouse button.

Selecting Menu Items

When a menu item is selected while the program is in the start routine's loop, the number of menu selected is stored in the variable menu0, which determines the subroutine to be entered. These subroutines are described below in increasing order of complexity.

Menu4 (Shape) checks the menu item selected and unchecks the previously selected item. It stores the number of the selected item in the variable ‘shape.’ Menu5 (Pensize) operates identically to Menu4, using the variable ‘size’ to store the pen size selected. Menu6 (Font) is similar to Menu4, but has to take into consideration that the fonts begin with zero rather than 1. Also, the program does not check to see which fonts are in the System. If a font not in the system is chosen, the default font (currently Geneva) is automatically used even though the menu indicates a different font was chosen.

Menu7 (Style), again, is similar to Menu4, but is a multi-check menu (i.e., more than one item may be checked at the same time), so the routine determines whether item selected is checked or not and toggles the check mark on or off. Also, checking menu item 1 (Plain) turns off all the other checkmarks. To further complicate this routine, TEXTFACE uses a geometrical progression to determine the style in order for the various styles to be combined. As a menu item is checked or unchecked, the variable ‘face’ has to have the appropriate value added or subtracted.

Menus 1 (File), 2 (Edit), and 3(Options) enter subroutines rather than assign values to variables as do 4 through 7. Menu3 gives the choice of selecting the size of the text, using the eraser, clearing the screen, or viewing the instructions. In increasing order of complexity, these routines are as follows:

Clearscreen does a CLS and returns to start. Instructions clears the screen and displays three pages of instructions, waiting for the OK button to be pressed after each page is read.

Erase works the same way as does free, except that it uses an eraser-shaped cursor (the same one that Macpaint uses) and that the pen mode is set to 11 (BIC) which changes all black pixels to white, thereby erasing all that it passes over.

Textsize overlays a second window on the drawing window, first storing the screen area that is obliterated by the window (the way this is done is explained in the portion of this article covering Cut, Copy, and Paste). The window displays an edit field and an OK button along with instructions to type the size of the text. A WHILE -- WEND loop waits for the OK button to be clicked or the Return key to be pressed. It also monitors the cursor position, changing it to an I-beam when it is in the edit field. Because the Macintosh cannot handle text sizes smaller than four points or larger than 127 points, the routine wrongsize is used to inform the user that he has selected a size that is out of range if he should do so. After a valid size has been selected, the window is closed and the portion of window 1 that was erased by window 2 is restored.

Menu2 handles Cut, Copy, and Paste. Cut and Copy use the routine called getit. Getit goes to a subroutine called corners. This routine determines the corners of a selection rectangle the same way that the shape drawing routines use and then RETURNs to getit. Getit then GOSUBs to dimbox. Dimbox DIMensions the array ‘box,’ using the formula given in the BASIC manual, and does a screen GET for the area selected. It then RETURNs to getit. Getit then determines whether it was called by Copy or Cut and, if the latter, erases the selected area of the screen. Dimbox is the routine that also saves the screen area behind dialog windows displayed in textsize, Open, Save, Print, and About

Paste uses the routine putit. This routine first GOSUBS to corners. Then if corners returns a selection rectangle, it PUTs the information stored in box into the rectangle, scaling it to fit. If no rectangle was selected, it PUTs the information on the screen, unscaled, where the cursor is when corners is exited. This position is the top left corner of the pasted picture. A modified form of putit is used to restore screen information when a dialog window is closed. Note that Basic itself does not even do this when system windows overlap!

Menu1 offers the options to start a new picture, Open a picture stored to disk, Save a picture to disk, Print a picture, and get information about the program. About opens a second window, storing the information behind it as described above, loads a picture called “About ” into the window, and waits for the OK button to be clicked. It then closes the window and restores the background. New is an alternate entry point for the clearscreen subroutine.

Open presents a dialog box that displays only those files generated by this program. The files are sequential text files of Type MIKE. After the file is selected, the window is closed and the background restored. The selected file is read into the variable ‘image$’ and the PICTURE statement puts the picture on the screen in the same place and size as it was when it was saved.

Save first waits for the user to select the portion to be saved, using getit as described above. PICTURE ON then causes any screen action to be placed in a buffer in memory. A screen PUT then places the data selected into the buffer and PICTURE OFF ends the record mode. The routine then displays a dialog box requesting the name of the file to which the picture will be saved. After Save is clicked, the window is closed, the background data restored, and the picture printed to disk. The file is then closed and the Type changed to MIKE.

Printit works very much as does Save, with the following exceptions: It prints the entire screen rather than a selected portion, and it sends the picture to the Imagewriter rather than to a disk file. By use of “LPT1:Prompt” rather than the more often used “LPT:” the program allows for selection of tall or tide orientation of the paper, normal or high quality printing, and (if you have the new Imagewriter driver file), 50 percent reduction.

More elements may be added to the program if you want to do so. A few of these are irregular shaped pens (such as | or --), filled areas, patterns for areas and lines, and polygons. I leave this as an exercise for you should you be so inclined.

Sidebar

The Macpaint Simulator requires that the picture file “About ” be on the same disk as the program. If the program were being copied from one machine to antother or being transmitted over a modem, this would be no problem. But, how do you get it to another person via the printed media, such as Mactutor ? This problem proved to be almost as interesting as writing the program itself. The answer became obvious when I realized that the picture file is a sequential text file. I wrote a program (Read Picture) that read the file in one byte at a time, translated the bytes to their ASCII code, and wrote the ASCII as DATA statements to a file called Datafile. Once I had the DATA statements on file, I wrote a short program that translates them back into characters and writes them to a disk file called “About ” I then renamed the program “Make Picture.” Both listings are provided here. You need to type in and run Write Picture before running Paint Simulator. Read Picture is provided so that if you need to send a picture file to someone by this means you will have the tools to do so. The programs are provided in their basic forms, designed only to translate “About ” If you plan to use them often, you will probably want to modify them to prompt you for the names of the respective files.
