    It depends.

    If you are trying to change the text color,use:

    textcolor();

    If you are using BGI:

    setcolor();

    If you are using anything else, explain.

    It depends on the compiler. In Borland, for example, DavidP's solution should work, but in others (or in certain screen modes even in Borland) it may not.
