WaitKey problem

BlitzPlus Forums/BlitzPlus Beginners Area/WaitKey problem

Hello, my struggles with this 'simple' language continue. Want to write a simple command line test program that waits for a keypress. It does not work:

Print "Press a key"
Print "done"

If I do this in a graphics windows, it does work. (ie. Graphics 640, 480)...

That's because without a window or a graphics mode there is nothing to accept the waitkey event.

Just create a little window offscreen if you need to.

OK, thanks.

Print "Press a key"
Graphics 0,0,0,2
Print "done"

As I hope you can tell, WaitKey is useless for the console. And the console is only good for simple input and print statements.

Above codes don't work.

It does in B+, but not B3D. At least on my computer...
