|Peripheral?||Yes- Term (API)|
The Advanced Monitor is a Monitor that has mouse (as 'punches') support, and can use the Color API for screen colors. They resemble the traditional computer console, but are golden coloured to match their crafting recipe. By default, an advanced monitor has a resolution of 7 pixels horizontally by 5 pixels horizontally, but this can be increased by using the monitor API and combining monitors (see explanation on the resolution page).
Using an Advanced Monitor
The Advanced Monitor introduces two new methods: monitor.setTextColor(color) and monitor.setBackgroundColor(color). These functions allow you to draw text with a specific foreground and background color. Please note that both spellings of the word color are accepted.
To use an Advanced Monitor, you need to either call a method directly using peripheral.call(), or, wrap the monitor using the Peripheral API. Wrapped monitors provide all functions listed in the Term API, with the exception of monitor.setTextScale(size), which is native to monitors only.
For this example, we have an Advanced Monitor connected to the top of our Computer:
-- Immediately invoke a method without wrapping peripheral.call("top", "write", "Hello World!")
-- You can also "wrap" the peripheral side to a variable: local monitor = peripheral.wrap("top") monitor.write("Hello World!")
