    Weird Errors

    Well, im trying to get full screen in console, but it doesnt seem to be working...

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h> //**REQUIRED TO WORK**
    
    int main() //**REQUIRED TO WORK**
    {
    
    	void fullscreen()          //another cool trick that I use to make it full screen or back to normal size
    
    	{
    
    	keybd_event(VK_MENU,0x38,0,0); //taken from cprogramming.com message board
    	keybd_event(VK_RETURN,0x1c,0,0);
    	keybd_event(VK_RETURN,0x1c,KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
    	keybd_event(VK_MENU,0x38,KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
    
    	}
    
    
    	char name1[15]
    	
    
    	cout<<"Hello World";
    	cout<<"What is your name?:";cin>>name1;
    	
    	
    	
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    	return 0;
    }
    What seems to be wrong here? I get errors like...
    error C2601: 'fullscreen' : local function definitions are illegal and error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'cout'

    thanks,
    Gutty

    The fullscreen( ) function has to be outside of main( ).
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    And, #include <windows.h>

    I think you need windows.h, because fullscreen() is not in iostream.h !

    And Gutty, please be more specific whth your titles... Like maybe "Weird error with fullscreen()" (See the Board Guidlines and Hints.)

    If you had actually read the code, you would have realized that he has the code for fullscreen( ), but it is just inside of main( ).
