    it has been asked 1000000 of times
    do a search for specifics

    hint - conio.h, textcolor ,etc

    textcolor is a function not a header.

    what compiler are you using

    ok

    do this
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <conio.h> //Needed to change colors
    
    int main()
    {
         textcolor(WHITE); 
         textbackground(BLUE);
       clrscr();
       cout<<"Hello"<<endl;
    return 0;
    }
    that will make the background of the dos screen blue and the words white. Look in conio.h for a listing of colors. Colors have to be in all caps. You have to clrscr() everytime you change the colors.

    Didn't I read somewhere that you use MSVC++ Denethor? If so then you don't have textcolor in your conio.h. Of course, I may just be crazy.

    My best code is written with the delete key.
