set 24 bits color using Watcom C Library

Hi all!

Somebody knows how can I set a color (24 bits resolution) pixel using Watcom C Library?

For 16 and 256 colors I’m using "setcolor " command, which i put the index of the color in the current palette!

With 24 bits I need pass the RGB values directly ? How can I do it?

I’m developping a PCX Viewer that works wiht 16 and 256 colors.

I’m trying develop a 24 bits PCX Viewer too.

To my knowledge that’s not supported. You have to remember this stuff is like 10 years old, where 24 bits was simply not available in VGA mode
