Locate (x, y) cursor position for echo

#1 Post by stephjo » 01 May 2020 15:39

Hi DOS fans,

I am wondering if there's a way to locate cursor to a particular (x, y) in a DOS Console window to print an echo statement.

I am trying to print something that constantly changes and don't want the output to be running on the screen.

Also, on a related topic, is it possible to print in color in DOS with echo statement?

Thank you,
-Steph

You could use vt100 codes, so this might help you:
