    C++ menu - help needed

    Hi everyone,

    I am very new to C++ and have only started learning/understanding the language.

    I am trying to create a very simple program - a basic menu system.

    I've started with code like (Below):

    What i'm tryin to achieve is for the user to be presented with a menu screen which gives options 1 - 3. Then the user types one of these option and is navigated to a new screen with new information on it.

    *I am completley stuck on how to navigate to a new screen, any ideas? help greatly appreciated.*

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h> 
    
    int main() 
    { 
      int num;
    
     
      cout << "Enter a number from 1 to 3: "; 
      cin >> num; 
     
      switch(num) { 
        case 1:  
          cout << "TEST1\n"; 
          break; 
        case 2:  
          cout << "TEST2\n"; 
          break; 
        case 3:  
          cout << "TEST3\n"; 
          break; 
        default: 
          cout << "You must enter either 1, 2, or 3.\n"; 
      } 
     
      return 0; 
    }

    I think all you are asking is how to clear the console screen??

    Thanks for replying.

    I read the FAQ before posting my thread. The only option that seemed possible was option1.

    Code:
    #include <conio.h> 
    
    int main(void)
    {
      clrscr();
      return(0);
    }
    But when I tried this using my compiler (Salford Plato 3), it did not recognise conio.h

    Any ways of getting round this?

    Then your compiler does not support the clrscr() function. Try option 6.

    But that is what you are asking help for, clearing the screen? Or did I misunderstand the question?
