The thing is if anything, write only, because it's a screen mode. You can draw to it to draw to a screen. (some screens support reading, but all screens support writing or they wouldn't be screens! Smile | :) )

Basically you instantiate a device, but the device itself has several screen modes. because of the way this code works, they must different actual types.

Hence the design complication.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
