Can i make text with a line going straight through it, to make the text look like its been crosed out? If so, whats the code? I have to make a Yahtzee game for comp sci and thought this would add a nice affect.

if you're using Font.Draw, you can draw another string of
code:

put repeat("-", length(word))


using same coordinates. It should cross it out.

repeat is a function and returns a value, not a procedure. You'd have to ether assign value to a variable first or use something like put that assepts a value. I modified the code above.

Here is an example of wht tony means Arrow
code:

var font : int := Font.New ("verdana:12")
var word : string
var strikeout : string
var x, y := 50
put "Type in the word to be striked out"
get word : *
cls
Font.Draw (word, x, y, font, black)
strikeout := repeat ("-", length (word) + length (word) div 3)
Font.Draw (strikeout, x, y, font, black)

I made this program which can strikeout almost ne fontsize and look pretty good

code:

const fontsize:=40
var font : int := Font.New ("verdana:"+intstr(fontsize))
var word : string
var strikeout : string
var x, y := 50
put "Type in the word to be striked out"
get word : *
cls
Font.Draw (word, x, y, font, black)
strikeout := repeat ("_", length (word)-length(word) div 10)
Font.Draw (strikeout, x, y+(fontsize div 2), font, black)

Change the fountsize:= value to change the font size
