Im making a new program (Win32 Console Application) in Visual C++...Two Questions...1) Is there a way to disable the blinking cursor on the screen? You know, the little white blinking rectangle :) 2) Is there a way to distinguish where to type a character (I.e. A "G" in the fourth row and sixth column) ?

Thanks

P.S. I posted this in another forum but I realized it would be better asking here probably...

>Is there a way to disable the blinking cursor on the screen?

Yes there is, but I don't have my helpfile handy. Use yours to look for cursor, screen and blink. If you don't have a helpfile, use www.msdn.microsoft.com.

>Is there a way to distinguish where to type a character

Yes. The function is called gotoxy by other compiler vendors. Have a look into the FAQ how to implement it in VC.
