    ...my line func...

    hey my line function compiles and everything but when i call it, it does not draw a line, here is the code:

    void draw(int x1, int y1, int x2, int y2)
    {
    tagPOINT pts[2] ;
    pts[0].x = x1 ;
    pts[0].y = y1 ;
    pts[1].x = x1 ;
    pts[1].y = y1 ;

    CONSOLE_SCREEN_BUFFER_INFO csbi ;
    HANDLE hConsole = GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE) ;

    GetConsoleScreenBufferInfo(hConsole, &csbi) ;
    Polyline((HDC)hConsole, pts, 2) ;
    }

    anyone have a clue?

    The console can't do win32 API GDI functions (like Polyline).

    i'ved tried all the graphic libs in the source section of the site, but the program has an error every time i run it. i use MVC++ 6.0
    since i am using a console app can i use assembly to draw graphics?

    No, the only graphics the console is capable of is ASCII (drawing with characters).
