    Post coordinates?

    Hey all,

    Ok is it possible to draw out the entire screen (for example in ascii codes the borders) and put text in places then move back for input at set coordinates? Ex: a user login would have username and password already written out and maybe a nice border around the window but the cursor would be right after the Username: . Any ideas or methods is appreciated and thanks for your time in reading this.

    You dont mention what operating system. Windows has lots of functions that could do this. In console mode and dos most compilers offer some sort of gotoxy() function. Read the FAQ
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :-
