    question about gotoxy();

    Hi,

    i've set up a For loop to display several strings. but for it to work i need to increment the y value in the gotoxy(X,Y); or the strings will just keep overwriting each other.

    I thought it was something like gotoxy(X,Y++); but when i try compile it it says "Lvalue required"

    I'm using TC3 as my compiler, though my program is written in C.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,
    thanks
    Fintan

    could it be that Y is a #define ? If so make it a variable.

    Unfortunately it's impossible to increment literals.
