Hello.  First time poster here :)

I've recently added a Classpad II to my collection.  One of old favorite programs on my other Casio graphics machines is a program I wrote years ago (first time on my original FX7000G) that plots a solid of revolution around X,Y points specified by the user.  Previously I've used the 'Plot' command with the pause triangle thing in a program to pause execution, show the graph image, and get the user to move a pointer to a location on screen, which is then stored in the X and Y variables when the user presses EXE.

I've tried this with the Classpad, and it's complaining that I'm not supplying arguments to the plot command.  I can see they're not optional in the programming manual.

So, my question is - is there an easy way to graphically and programatically get a coordinate from the user?  I can't find salient anything in the manual, and while I'm quite capable, I'd rather not have to spend time writing a subroutine that fiddles about with getkey and the like if there's something hidden away that will already do the job.


Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately Casio are incredibly vague about programming commands. What I've learned came not from the manuals but forums like this one. Go forums!

Best of luck...
