    hi everyone, my name is Atique and i am new to the forum so my regards to all, i'm working in vc++ 6.0 and i need a function that gives the current console window position, and a function to set the position of the console,

    i have just covered oop form my uni and do not know much about windows programming, but someone suggested that it is concerned with windows programming,

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
        HWND conwin = GetConsoleWindow();
        RECT conrect;
        if (!conwin || !GetWindowRect(conwin, &conrect))
        {
            cerr << "Error" << endl;
            return 1;
        }//if
    
        cout << "(" << conrect.left << "," << conrect.top << ")-("
             << conrect.right << "," << conrect.bottom << ")" << endl;
        
        int width = conrect.right - conrect.left;
        int height = conrect.bottom - conrect.top;
        cout << "W=" << width << endl;
        cout << "H=" << height << endl;
        
        cout << "Moving to 0,0...." << endl;
        MoveWindow(conwin, 0, 0, width, height, TRUE);
