    Which is why frequently asked questions like this are answered in the board FAQ.

    Get a copy of Programming windows by charles petzold. This is the best book to start learning windows programming from. Its not cheap like most computer books but it will be money well spent. What you want to do cannot be done in a text console so you will need to learn win32 api or go back to real dos with an old compiler and use a graphics mode to display bitmaps on the screen.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    You can build a text image with a vector and append other images to it. I was just reading about how that is not much different than working with graphics... the same concept is applied.

    Arrow im only 12

    In C++ you must use API's to do anything, even with ANSI text you're using the STDIO API. so you have a wide veriety of ways to choose from, as well as just makking your own.

    OpenGL
    WinAPI
    DirectX
    13h
    (Some other DOS mode)
    (Make your own)

    Contact me if u want to learn one of these.
