c++.command-line - Using gotoxy, wherex, wherey

Hi,

I'm used of woking with an old borland compiler and making small dos
applications.

In these applications I often used gotoxy for positioning the cursor and
textcolor, textbackground for setting colors of the text.

In the dmc compiler these functions seem to be not included.

Was this the intention because there is an alternative way ?
Or is this something that is just not implemented.

Take a look at disp.h, that the Digital Mars was of doing it...

Hi,

Thank you very much it is just what I was looking for ;)

unfortunately it does not work exactly as desired ...
I've tried out an example of the reference (the function disp_pokew)
and it does not return the desired or shown result.
It just comes back with "getconsolescreenbufferinfo"
and it makes no sense to me.

Could you please help me with this small problem

Thanks in advance

I've rechecked again ...

and you're right it is working perfectly ...
I'm using UltraEdit to write the C++ and I've configured 2 tools 1 to compile
with dmc and one to execute the C++ program.

The last one was causing the problem. It tries to catch the console output. But
by using the disp.h no output is generated and that generates the message.

Running the program from Explorer works fine ;)
Thank you very much.
