SDL_SetVideoMode(3)	       SDL API Reference	   SDL_SetVideoMode(3)

       SDL_SetVideoMode - Set up a video mode with the specified width, height
       and bits-per-pixel.

       #include "SDL.h"

       SDL_Surface *SDL_SetVideoMode(int width, int height,  int  bpp,	Uint32

       Set  up	a  video  mode	with the specified width, height and bits-per-

       If bpp is 0, it is treated as the current display bits per pixel.

       The flags parameter is the same as the flags field of  the  SDL_Surface
       structure. OR'd combinations of the following values are valid.

       SDL_SWSURFACE	   Create the video surface in system memory

       SDL_HWSURFACE	   Create the video surface in video memory

       SDL_ASYNCBLIT	   Enables the use of asynchronous updates of the dis‐
			   play surface. This will usually slow down  blitting
			   on  single  CPU  machines,  but may provide a speed
			   increase on SMP systems.

       SDL_ANYFORMAT	   Normally, if a video surface of the requested bits-
			   per-pixel  (bpp) is not available, SDL will emulate
			   one with a shadow  surface.	Passing	 SDL_ANYFORMAT
			   prevents  this and causes SDL to use the video sur‐
			   face, regardless of its pixel depth.

       SDL_HWPALETTE	   Give SDL exclusive  palette	access.	 Without  this
			   flag	 you  may  not	always	get the the colors you
			   request with SDL_SetColors or SDL_SetPalette.

       SDL_DOUBLEBUF	   Enable hardware double buffering; only  valid  with
			   SDL_HWSURFACE.  Calling SDL_Flip will flip the buf‐
			   fers and update the screen. All drawing  will  take
			   place  on  the surface that is not displayed at the
			   moment. If double buffering could  not  be  enabled
			   then SDL_Flip will just perform a SDL_UpdateRect on
			   the entire screen.

       SDL_FULLSCREEN	   SDL will attempt to use a  fullscreen  mode.	 If  a
			   hardware  resolution	 change	 is  not possible (for
			   whatever reason), the next higher  resolution  will
			   be  used and the display window centered on a black

       SDL_OPENGL	   Create an OpenGL rendering context. You should have
			   previously	set   OpenGL   video  attributes  with

       SDL_OPENGLBLIT	   Create an OpenGL rendering context, like above, but
			   allow  normal  blitting operations. The screen (2D)
			   surface   may   have	  an   alpha   channel,	   and
			   SDL_UpdateRects  must  be used for updating changes
			   to the screen surface.

       SDL_RESIZABLE	   Create a  resizable	window.	 When  the  window  is
			   resized by the user a SDL_VIDEORESIZE event is gen‐
			   erated and SDL_SetVideoMode	can  be	 called	 again
			   with the new size.

       SDL_NOFRAME	   If  possible,  SDL_NOFRAME  causes  SDL to create a
			   window with	no  title  bar	or  frame  decoration.
			   Fullscreen modes automatically have this flag set.


	      Whatever	flags  SDL_SetVideoMode	 could	satisfy are set in the
	      flags member of the returned surface.


	      The bpp parameter is the number of bits per pixel, so a  bpp  of
	      24 uses the packed representation of 3 bytes/pixel. For the more
	      common 4 bytes/pixel mode, use a bpp of 32. Somewhat oddly, both
	      15 and 16 will request a 2 bytes/pixel mode, but different pixel

       The framebuffer surface, or NULL if it fails. The surface  returned  is
       freed by SDL_Quit() and should nt be freed by the caller.
