    Question Slow character output...

    Im trying to make the title of my program output one character at a time, kind of like a "Loading..." bar going across the screen but with characters. I'm just wanted to know some different methods to do this.

    if what you want is to delay the display time between each char then use
    the delay funtion or else then sleep/Sleep function depending on your compiler

    do a search and you'll find lots of help on them


    but if you are asking for diff ways to show a loading screen, then the kind i like is usually the bars that increase + the percent the app has loaded.

    this works...

    string copy the big long thing you want to type out letter at a time
    into a char then loop it with a sleep

    Code:
    #include<windows.h>
    #include<iostream.h>
    
    x=0;
    strcpy(
    while(x != 100)
    {
    cout << char[x];
    Sleep(250);
    }
