    Question Background

    I think this has been asked before, but I'm specifiying DOS. How do I put an entire background (not textbackground, or whatever it is)?

    If you have conio.h then textbackground() changes the color of the whole screen/background . Though i dont undertand what you mean by "not textbackground".

    this is how i do.. non std though

    Code:
    #include<conio.h>
    #include<iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    textbackground(4);
    clrscr();
    cout<<"THE BACKGROUND IS RED BUT TEXT IS NORMAL WHITE";
    getch();
    return 0;
    }

    sorry.. if this doesn't do what you want.
