Inconsistancy between free42/hp-42s & DM42

Post by richmit »

The setup: An active programmable menu followed by CLLCD & AGRAPH.

Probably best illustrated with a bit of code:

Code: Select all

LBL "TEST"
LBL 01
CLMENU
"HI"
KEY 1 XEQ 02
KEY 9 GTO 03
MENU
STOP
GTO 01
LBL 02
CLLCD
"123456789"
1
1
AGRAPH
RTN
LBL 03
RTN
END
On a real hp-42s and on free42, the screen won't repaint till you hit a key and you will see what you drew with AGRAPH:

On a DM42 in GrMod 1, you get the programmable menu drawn over the graphics. Note the menu is *not* drawn at the bottom of the screen, but the bottom of the virtual graphics window at the top of the screen:

In other GrMods it works like the hp-42s & free42.

This is on the production firmware. I have not tried this on the beta firmware yet.
