Works with


Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) the number of 8K blocks allocated to display memory.

Display memory contains both the information visible on the display and information that has scrolled off the display. It is a log of what has recently been sent from the host to the PC. This property determines the amount of memory you want to allocate to display memory. The default value is for 9 blocks of 8 kilobytes each, or 72K of display memory.

The number of bytes you are currently using is calculated on each character of text; you'll have more "pages" of display memory when your text lines do not run all the way out to the right margin. The default value holds approximately 25 pages of display memory when each line is exactly 80 characters long.

Decreasing the size of display memory causes Reflection to clear or reset the contents of display memory. Increasing the size of display memory does not modify the contents of display memory.


The default value is 9.

The range of values is 9-999.
