NAME

       ggiSetMode, ggiGetMode - Set or get a mode on a visual

SYNOPSIS

       #include <ggi/ggi.h>

       int ggiSetMode(ggi_visual_t visual, ggi_mode *tm);

       int ggiGetMode(ggi_visual_t visual, ggi_mode *tm);

DESCRIPTION

       ggiSetMode  sets  any  mode  (text or graphics).  It also performs mode
       negotiation  like  ggiCheckMode(3),  but  if  any  non-GGI_AUTO/GT_AUTO
       parameters are changed from the original mode, the new mode will not be
       silently set.

       ggiGetMode fills out the passed ggi_mode(3) with the parameters of  the
       current mode of the visual.

RETURN VALUE

       ggiSetMode returns 0 if the mode is set successfully, otherwise an ggi-
       error(3) code.

NOTES

       Do not set a mode before checking it. You may  be  able  to  set  up  a
       certain mode on one target, but not other targets.

       See the example in ggiCheckMode(3).
              Important:  Note  that the ggiSetTextMode(3), ggiSetGraphMode(3)
              and   ggiSetSimpleMode(3)   functions   are   deprecated.    Use
              ggiCheckMode(3)    and   similar   functions,   and   then   use
              ggiSetMode(3) on the resulting adjusted  ggi_mode(3),  once  you
              have checked it yourself.
