    Changing Text Colors Or Look In C++

    Is there any way to make some of the text faded or grey in c++? The reason why I'm asking is because I want to make some options only accessible when previous options are selected and you return back to the previous menu? What I planned on doing was to disable options that were in that text so that you had to input other options first. If there is no way to make faded text or grey text in basic c++ code is there any way around what I want to do? Thanks in advance for responses.

    Basically, there's no default C++ way to do something like that. It's platform dependant, really. If you're building a console application, you'll probably need a 3rd party library.
    Typing stuff in Code::Blocks 8.02, compiling stuff with MinGW 3.4.5.
