    gotoxy

    Halo all,
    I was just using a simple example of gotoxy function.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    int main(void)
    {
    printf("Here\n");
    gotoxy(35,12);
    printf("There\n");
    }
    But getting errors and warning as this.
    Code:
    Warning	1	warning C4013: 'gotoxy' undefined; assuming extern returning int	
    Error	2	error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _gotoxy referenced in function _main
    Error	3	fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
    When I right clicked gotoxy and chose "Go to definition", I get this message
    The symbol "gotoxy" is not defined.
    What's wrong with it? Somebody please help.
    Thanks
    HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND.......

    It looks like you may have write the gotoxy() function your self.

    Look up SetConsoleCursorPosition(), if in Windows...

    I hope this would be helpful

    gotoxy() is not a standard function. From one of the FAQ's on THIS WEBSITE you can find:

    Q. No, really - I just want to do gotoxy!!!

    [insert]
    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    
    void gotoxy(int x, int y)
    {
    COORD coord;
    coord.X = x;
    coord.Y = y;
    SetConsoleCursorPosition(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_H ANDLE), coord);
    }

    Ok. After going through the FAQ, now I get to know why gotoxy doesn't work in MSVS but works perfectly fine with TC(non-standard). Thanks all of you.

    Do NOT use TC. It fails to be standard compliant.
    Just use SetConsoleCursorPosition.
