is there a color value for black?
I'm trying to output using a black foreground and white background. I've tried using FOREGROUND_BLACK but it didn't work.
SetConsoleTextAttribute (GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), BACKGROUND_RED | BACKGROUND_GREEN | BACKGROUND_BLUE | BACKGROUND_INTENSITY);
That should make the text black with a very white background.
Note: You can mix colors.
inorder to make 'white', you have to mix those three colors.
You can also change the BACKGROUND to FOREGROUND.
INTENSITY will make the colors look brighter.
oh wait, check this out man. I just found this.
It's a good place for other info on windows console programming too.
