title(); gets 'messed up' if called multiple times in an app.

Demonstrated:
main() {
graph_on();clearg();
title("a short title");
waitp();clearg();
title("a slightly longer title");
waitp();clearg();
title("tiny title");
waitp();graph_off();exit();
}

(tested on palm m100 and IIIc and V (emulator) and m100 (real thing))

code that does work as 'expected':
main() {
graph_on();
title("a short title");
waitp(); graph_off();graph_on();
title("a slightly longer title");
waitp(); graph_off();graph_on();
title("tiny title");
waitp(); graph_off(); exit();
}


Perhaps I'm too much of a 'newbie' at PocketC & Palm apps to say this is a bug, but I've done lots of programming in my lifetime and I'd sure consider it one ;) If title() is supposed to set the title in the upper part of the palm screen and give it a particular look, it should do it no matter what title was there before it and without having to shut down the graphics page and restart it again.

Again, I'm new at all this and maybe just missing something about title() that I should know but don't ;)

dude, you have to call the "graph_off();" function and then call "graph_on();" again before you change the title name.

Demonstrated:
main() {
graph_on();clearg();
title("a short title");
waitp();<font color="red">graph_off();graph_on();</font id="red">
title("a slightly longer title");
waitp();<font color="red">graph_off();graph_on();</font id="red">
title("tiny title");
waitp();graph_off();exit();
}

It's not necesary call the graph_off(); function only the graph_on. Check it.
main() {
graph_on();clearg();
title("a short title");
waitp();graph_on();
title("a slightly longer title");
waitp();graph_on();
title("tiny title");
waitp();
}
