Re: How to move cursor upwards without cls?

@Aacini - First of all, I'm sorry for the 5 days delayed response. I was busy for a few days so I couldn't even open DosTips. I know that I made some modifications of the timeout line. But now I c/p your code and this is the output: 0 0 0 .0 10 Waiting for 1 seconds, press a key to continue ...The s...

Re: How to move cursor upwards without cls?

@aGerman - I know Powershell isn't pure batch, but it is still better than having a big bunch of EXEs. So I guess you could call my program semi-pure batch @Aacini - After a LOT of experimenting, I've finally found out what the problem is (or at least I think so ). First look at the code: @echo off ...

Re: How to move cursor upwards without cls?

@aGerman - That is the whole problem. I can't use 3rd party tools because I'm trying to make my program in pure batch. If I had to use 3rd party tools, I would've already used batbox or bg.exe!

Nonetheless, thanks for your code and hard work in digging out those links :D .




Cheers,

Re: How to move cursor upwards without cls?

@ShadowThief - I need to call the function like at least 50 times in my program, if that isn't too 'often' for you. @aGerman - Thanks! Your modified code works fluently, and without any errors. So I'm gonna stick with it. Although I have noticed that its slow if called repeatedly. So it can only be ...

Re: How to move cursor upwards without cls?

@aGerman - It still doesn't solve my problem. Here's the whole first line of output: 0 | 0 Only the "|" character is outputted by me. Everything else is the console's magic . And here is the code I'm using: Call :MoveCursorUp for /l %%A IN (1,1,5) DO ( Call :XY 1 5 Call :colorPrint 0b &quo...

Re: How to move cursor upwards without cls?

@Aacini - Windows 7 34 bit I've made the mod that you suggested and still it shows a 0 at the top. There's also a line appears at the current cursor position which looks something like this : Waiting for 0.1, It comes and disappears quickly so I can't c/p the line. I think it is of the timeout comma...

Re: How to move cursor upwards without cls?

@Aacini - Thanks! The script works flawlessly, but, it displays a 0 at 0,0 which I certainly don't want. Other than that, I've noticed no bugs in the script and the great part is that it doesn't even slow down the program execution.



Thanks again,

Re: Best way to obfuscate a Batch File?

@dbenham - It's great that even the beginning character mapping lines of the code can be encrypted too. I was a bit worried about that if the user reads and understands the character mapping lines, they could decode the code in just a few hours/days (depending on the length of the code). But I didn'...

Re: How to move cursor upwards without cls?

@Aacini - I tried both of the links, but I couldn't understand the usage. Hence I wasn't able to move my cursor to the desired location. I know it's too much to ask, but can you develop a piece of code for me that moves the cursor to 0,0 again?

How to move cursor upwards without cls?

Hey guys!, So while I was experimenting with graphics for my new pure batch app, I came across a problem. I wanted to move the cursor back to 0,0 from any position on the cmd console, without clearing the screen. As I do with most of my problems, I searched the solution on the internet. I found jeb'...

Re: How to perfectly extract the content of a text file?

@Compo - Thanks again, for the rewrite. The revised version of your code printed the line with poison characters just fine and I noticed a slight speed change too.

Re: How to perfectly extract the content of a text file?

@Compo - I'm really sorry. I apologize for the lack of details, but there will be eventually every type of character in the file. Whether it be a poison character or any other, I hope till then I would've mastered the for loop and known how to get around this problem. Anyways, about the code: I trie...

Re: How to perfectly extract the content of a text file?

@Phil - Thanks a bunch man! Your code works perfectly!

@Compo - I tried your code but it doesn't seem to support poison characters. I still appreciate the efforts you put into brainstorming the code.

Re: How to perfectly extract the content of a text file?

@Phil & @Compo - I'm really grateful to you because the code that you guys provided is working. But I actually have 5 Files that I want to use this code on. 4 of them are similar to each other and the code works on them, but the 5th one is a bit different and the code doesn't work on it. Here is...

How to perfectly extract the content of a text file?

Hey guys! So after my previous for loop problem, I thought everything was solved and good, but little did I know, that fortune had another problem in-store for me! Trying to extract data from my same text file "E_Summary.txt", I encountered another hair-tearing problem which was: Content o...
