VioWrtNChar writes a character to the display a specified number of times.

Syntax

VioWrtNChar (Char, Times, Row, Column, VioHandle)

Parameters

Char (PCH) - input 
Address of the character to be written.
Times (USHORT) - input 
Number of times to write the character.
Row (USHORT) - input 
Starting cursor row.
Column (USHORT) - input 
Starting cursor column.
VioHandle (HVIO) - input 
This must be zero unless the caller is a Presentation Manager application, in which case it must be the value returned by VioGetPs.

Return Code

rc (USHORT) - return
Return code descriptions are:
  • 0 NO_ERROR
  • 355 ERROR_VIO_MODE
  • 358 ERROR_VIO_ROW
  • 359 ERROR_VIO_COL
  • 436 ERROR_VIO_INVALID_HANDLE
  • 465 ERROR_VIO_DETACHED

Remarks

If a repeated write gets to the end of the line and is not complete, the write continues at the beginning of the next line. If the write gets to the end of the screen, the write terminates.

PM Considerations

Write a character to the Advanced VIO presentation space a number of times. The caller must specify the starting location on the presentation space where the string is to be written.
