    Do a search on the board for something like 'changing color'. Someone posted a really handy color changer function a while back. I can't remember who it was, but you could do a search for their name if someone else remembers who...

    Try running this. It shows all of the colors and the code is easy to understand.
    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void gotoxy(int x, int y)
    {
       COORD coord;
       coord.X = x;
       coord.Y = y;
       SetConsoleCursorPosition(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), coord);
    }
    
    
    
    void color(int color) 
    { 
    SetConsoleTextAttribute(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE),color); 
    } 
    
    
    
    
    
    
    void main ()
    {
       int i = 0;
       for (int x = 0; x <= 79; x+=3)
       {
          for (int y = 0; y <= 49; y+=3)
          {
             color(i);
             gotoxy(x,y);
             printf("%1d",i);
             i++;
             if (i > 255)
             break;
          }
       if (i > 255)
       break;
       }
    
    }

    >void main ()
    tim, I know you didn't use void main. My eyes must be playing tricks on me due to sleep deprivation

    I made that program late at night. I didn't feel like spending the extra 3 seconds writing return 0. I'm sorry. Here's the real version:
    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void gotoxy(int x, int y)
    {
       COORD coord;
       coord.X = x;
       coord.Y = y;
        SetConsoleCursorPosition(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_H
    ANDLE), coord);
    }
    
    
    
    void color(int color) 
    { 
     SetConsoleTextAttribute(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HA
    NDLE),color); 
    } 
    
    
    
    
    
    
    int main (void)
    {
       int i = 0;
       for (int x = 0; x <= 79; x+=3)
       {
          for (int y = 0; y <= 49; y+=3)
          {
             color(i);
             gotoxy(x,y);
             printf("%1d",i);
             i++;
             if (i > 255)
             break;
          }
       if (i > 255)
       break;
       }
    
       return (0);
    }

    Maybe I should change my name to "Goddess of Nitpicking".
