    Trying to find a way to change color

    I am using .NET Visual Studio C++ and am trying to find a way to change the output color to the console window. I am wanting to make some words red, white and blue and not sure if there is a function include that I can do that with. Thanks for any help

    Problem with how that thread told me to do it is that it only allows you to set it one time. So you cant make one word red...everything turns red.

    To change back, just change the color to grey after the word you changed to red. I believe the normal text color is red|blue|green
