    Screen Effects

    Im making a new program (Win32 Console Application) in Visual C++...Two Questions...1) Is there a way to disable the blinking cursor on the screen? You know, the little white blinking rectangle 2) Is there a way to distinguish where to type a character (I.e. A "G" in the fourth row and sixth column) ?

    Thanks

    P.S. I posted this in another forum but I realized it would be better asking here probably...

    >Is there a way to disable the blinking cursor on the screen?

    Yes there is, but I don't have my helpfile handy. Use yours to look for cursor, screen and blink. If you don't have a helpfile, use www.msdn.microsoft.com.

    >Is there a way to distinguish where to type a character

    Yes. The function is called gotoxy by other compiler vendors. Have a look into the FAQ how to implement it in VC.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
