c:graphics.h:detectgraph

detectgraph

Syntax of detectgraph

#include <graphics.h>
void detectgraph(int *graphdriver, int *graphmode);

Description of detectgraph

detectgraph detects your system's graphics adapter and chooses the mode
that provides the highest resolution for that adapter. If no graphics
hardware is detected, *graphdriver is set to grNotDetected (-2), and
graphresult returns grNotDetected (-2).
*graphdriver is an integer that specifies the graphics driver to be used.
You can give it a value using a constant of the graphics_drivers
enumeration type defined in graphics.h and listed as follows:
graphics_drivers constant  Numeric value
DETECT0 (requests autodetect)
CGA   1
MCGA  2
EGA   3
EGA64 4
EGAMONO     5
IBM8514     6
HERCMONO    7
ATT4008
VGA   9
PC327010
*graphmode is an integer that specifies the initial graphics mode (unless
*graphdriver equals DETECT; in which case, *graphmode is set to the
highest resolution available for the detected driver). You can give
*graphmode a value using a constant of the graphics_modes enumeration
type defined in graphics.h and listed as follows.

Note: The main reason to call detectgraph directly is to override the
graphics mode that detectgraph recommends to initgraph.
