    Question Beginner Question: How to put a character at a certain position?

    Hi!

    I would be thankful if anyone could tell me if its possible to put a character a a specific position on the screen in "Win32 Console Application"? something like "pos(x-coordinate, y-coordinate)" and if there is an easy way to change screen resolution?

    Thanks
    Johan

    There is an example of how to do thew positioning in the "Various" section of the board FAQ.

    I'm not sure if you can alter the resolution in a console, never needed to try.
