    Question back...

    i'm running a dev++ and i can't figure out y the background isn't fully covered with blue y and how to change?

    int choice,x;
    x=1;
    do{
    textbackground(BLUE);
    system("cls");
    printf("****************************************** *************************************\n");
    printf("\6\t\t \t\t \6\n");
    printf("\3\t 1.\t Resistor Value -> Colour Code \t\t \3\n");
    printf("\6\t\t \t\t \6\n");
    printf("\3\t 2.\t Colour Code -> Resistor Value \t\t \3\n");
    printf("\6\t\t \t\t \6\n");
    printf("\3\t 3.\t Store Resistor Values \t\t \3\n");
    printf("\6\t\t \t\t \6\n");
    printf("\3\t 4.\t Recorded Resistor Values \t\t \3\n");
    printf("\6\t\t \t\t \6\n");
    printf("\3\t 5.\t Quit \t\t \3\n");
    printf("\6\t\t \t\t \6\n");
    printf("****************************************** *************************************\n\n");
    printf("\n\n");
    printf("Please enter a choice : ");
    choice=getche();

    Read this.

    This belongs in the DOS (or C) programming forum.

    ..Yeah, you should really use code tags. But any rate, the color procedure you used isn't working on my computer at all. To easily use colors in DOS C++ you can simply use a system command:
    Code:
    system("color 4A"); //red and green
    See, it's in hexdecimal (0-9 and A-F). The first color is the background and the second color is the foreground. Hope that helps.

    (oh, btw.. You forgot to include the end of your DO-WHILE loop in your code snippet! )
