UP and DOWN are reversed!

Discuss PocketC for Palm OS (including Desktop Edition)

I dont know if this is normal....or if it is a bug...

I am doing a program that moves a pixel across the screen (useless huh?).
this is how it works: if I press UP, int y will go up by 1, if I press DOWN, int y will go down by 1.

BUT when I press UP, y goes down by 1 and when I press DOWN, y goes up by 1!

Strange eh?

On the Palm OS (and most computer systems) the origin of the screen (0,0) is at the upper left. So, to make the dot go up, decrease y.
