gui_set_screen — Changes the bitmap surface GUI routines draw to. Allegro game programming library.

Synopsis

#include <allegro.h>

void gui_set_screen(BITMAP *bmp);

Description

This function can be used to change the bitmap surface the GUI routines draw to. This can be useful if you are using a double buffering or page flipping system. Passing NULL will cause the default surface (screen) to be used again. Example:

BITMAP *page[2];

/* Allocate two pages of video memory */
page[0] = create_video_bitmap(SCREEN_W, SCREEN_H);
page[1] = create_video_bitmap(SCREEN_W, SCREEN_H);

/* Page flip */
show_video_bitmap(page[0]);
gui_set_screen(page[0]);
