Colors in the Console using C
Posted by Mycroft [send private reply] at March 09, 2002, 08:00:11 PM I'm working on a console program and want to use different colored text and backgrounds. I know how to make red, blu, green, orange, purple, black, and white with CHAR_INFO attributes but can I make other colors too? If so how?
Posted by AREM [send private reply] at March 10, 2002, 02:56:21 PM You can make custon colors using RGB(). An easy way to remember is Red Green Blue (RGB) :). you enter a number for each color ex: RGB(255,0,0) = all red.
Posted by Mycroft [send private reply] at March 10, 2002, 05:02:19 PM How do I use the RGB() function to change colors, do I put it in the CHAR_INFO attributes?
screenBuffer[counter].Attributes = RGB(255,0,0); <-WOULD THIS WORK
