    gotoxy

    when i use it to move a @ around the screen just right and down first i have to hold 1 or 2 down before it even moves then it starts to be like if you hit 2 some times it goes over instead of down heres my code:
    Code:
    int main()
    {
    char in;
    int x = 0;
    int y = 0;
    
    gotoxy(0, 0);
    cout<<"@"<<endl;
    
    while(1 == 1)
    {
    in = getch();
    
    switch(in)
    {
    case '1':
    clrscr();
    gotoxy(x++, y);
    cout<<"@"<<endl;
    break;
    case '2':
    clrscr();
    gotoxy(x, y++);
    cout<<"@"<<endl;
    break;
    }
    }
    }

    gotoxy(x++, y);

    x is incremented after the gotoxy is performed. You would like to increment it before that happens. gotoxy(++x, y);
    Likewise in the y-line.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
