    Resizing the Console

    Can't really find anything on the net, but i'm sure it can be done. I'm looking for a way to resize (i guess in pixels) the console window. with c++ code of course.

    I know you can right click the title bar on the console window, and set the default size of the window there, but that won't help me. Anyone have any suggestions, or anyone know how?

    Oh <scowl emoticon>, I'm sure you could figure it out man. Well, our good freind adrienxw has a little section on his site about win32 console programming, with a convenient example using the API and a nifty little effect here: http://www.adrianxw.dk/SoftwareSite/...Consoles6.html
