Question:· why am I unable to compile a program using IDE if I have '$00' or color '$C,0' in a

text.str(string($00,$A,12,$B,14,$C,0,"print this",13,13)) command?

The IDE gives me an error that I cannot use $00 or use the color palette selection of 0.

Because the zero value is used to indicate the end of a string, it is not allowed in the string() construction. You can define this string in a DAT section and pass its address to text.str or you can split the string into pieces and use .out for the zero bytes like:

text.str(string("print this",13,13))
