Another newbie question.
Is there a way that I could use the keyboard to navagate a list of options? For example if this was output on the screen:
Could I possible get a box of gray that highlights the first option and then be able to use the keyboard arrows to move it up and down?
Yes and yes. The background colour stuff is covered in part 4 of my tutorial here, and handling keyboard events, (and mouse events incidently), is covered in part 5.
That's an interesting tutorial. I have one question so far. You said:
"By default, Windows places the path of the executable in the window title. "
I don't see that. I use VC++ 6, and I just get the name of the program in the title bar, e.g "test". The full path name to my .exe file is:
I tried running my program from the command prompt(Start->Programs->MSDOS window) and then cd'ing to the relevant directory, but the title bar of that DOS window is MSDOS-Prompt and it doesn't change when I run a "hello world" program, and in that case even when I set the title myself using SetConsoleTitle(), it still says MSDOS-Prompt.
How can I see that default behavior?
The link is not working for me :(

I posted a note on my home page about planned downtime today, and possibly tomorrow to upgrade my network hardware. I also seem to be having a brand new problem with my DNS provider, but their e-mail is bouncing me, and their contact page is 404'ing, so I can't do anything about that right now.
If it looks like it's going to take a while, I'll create a sub-domain on my wifes site to link to mine.
Sorry for the inconvenience, I'm as ........ed off about it as you believe me.
When you have time could you look at my previous post?

Sorry, didn't notice it, have been somewhat busy today.

Don't know. The behaviour is what it does for me on all my system's from Win95 - WinXP. If I get a minute I'll have a closer look.
My site is temporarily available here.

It's back where it should be now.
You guys have to learn how to use Google's cached snapshot of page. Can't live w/o it. ;)
I am using Windows 98 and MSVC++ 6.0, if that helps.
I think somehow when I set up MSVC++6.0 the directory:
was designated as the current directory even though my compiler is in the directory:
C:\Program Files\C++ Microsoft Visual Studio
(Although, I can't find that setting anywhere.)
So, does it make sense when I run programs inside VC++ 6 that the title bar only shows the folder name "test"? The full path to the .exe file is:
