    Screen display

    Could anyone help me in screen displays? For instance, how would I print yellow text on a blue background? How could I print text to the screen when the user presses a key but also keep the same text(like a menu) on the bottom of the screen? How could I print over text on the screen then reprint what used to be there? Anyone know of some tutorials specific to this topic? Thanks

    hope this is what you want

    Well, could you give me more info? Like what libraries I need to lookup or possibly what functions? Where can I check out this info?
