    just one more thing..

    Well this code works almost perfect.. but there is just one thing... i check this out


    Code:
    you have typed the down key
    you have typed the down key
    you have typed the down key
    you have typed left arrow
    you have typed left arrow
    you have typed left arrow
    you have typed the down key
    you have typed the down key
    you have typed the down key
    you have typed the down keyyou have typed the down keyyou have typed the down
    well the prob here is that once it gets to the end
    it wont pring on a new line anymore.. as you can see... so how can i make it so it can print on a new line..

    heres the code...

    Code:
      start_color();
      keypad(stdscr,TRUE);
    
    box(stdscr,0,0);
    while(1)
    {
       ch = getch();
        switch(ch)
        {
           case  KEY_LEFT:
    
                   init_pair(2,COLOR_RED, COLOR_BLACK);
    	       attron(COLOR_PAIR(2));
                   printw("you have typed left arrow\n");
    	       attroff(COLOR_PAIR(2));
    	       break;
    
           case KEY_RIGHT:
    
                  init_pair(2,COLOR_RED, COLOR_BLACK);
    	      attron(COLOR_PAIR(2));
                  printw("you have typed right arrow\n");
    	      attroff(COLOR_PAIR(2));
    	      break;
    
           case KEY_UP:
    
                  init_pair(2,COLOR_RED, COLOR_BLACK);
    	      attron(COLOR_PAIR(2));
                  printw("you have typed up arrow\n");
    	      break;
    
           case KEY_DOWN:
    
                  init_pair(2,COLOR_RED, COLOR_BLACK);
    	      attron(COLOR_PAIR(2));
                  printw("you have typed the down key\n");
    	      break;
    
    	      }
    	   }
    	     refresh();
    	     endwin();
    	     return 0;
    }

    I'm not too sure I see the exact problem. Shouldn't you have refresh() inside the main while loop?

    actualy no.. refresh() is kinda really used only when your like using printw... then it should be used at the end of it but not at the loop
