request_video_bitmap(3alleg4)					  Allegro manual				     request_video_bitmap(3alleg4)

NAME
request_video_bitmap - Triple buffering page flip request. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> int request_video_bitmap(BITMAP *bitmap); DESCRIPTION
This function is used for triple buffering. It requests a page flip to display the specified video bitmap object, but returns immediately rather than waiting for a retrace. The flip will then take place during the next vertical retrace, but you can carry on running other code in the meantime and use the poll_scroll() routine to detect when the flip has actually taken place. Triple buffering is only possible on certain hardware: see the comments about request_scroll(). Example: int current_page; BITMAP *video_page[3]; ... /* Create pages for page flipping */ video_page[0] = create_video_bitmap(SCREEN_W, SCREEN_H); video_page[1] = create_video_bitmap(SCREEN_W, SCREEN_H); video_page[2] = create_video_bitmap(SCREEN_W, SCREEN_H); current_page = 0; ... /* draw the screen and flip pages */ draw_screen(video_page[current_page]); do { } while (poll_scroll()); request_video_bitmap(video_page[current_page]); current_page = (current_page+1)%3; ... RETURN VALUE
Returns zero on success and non-zero on failure. SEE ALSO
