Screen Graphics Borland C++ 4.0

In 32-bit applications, how do I "play" with screen colors, fonts...  All "Help" areas claim not to use in 32-bit.

Adjusted points to 15
In dos: use conio.h and/or BGI.
In windows: use the OWL framework.

A vague question result in a vague answer, I'm not telepathic.
Also my talents and knowledge seem to vanish if they are not stimulated with at least 50 points :-)

I figured for 15 points, that this was just a "play" question.  :-)
Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Aside from the low point value -

you don't even mention if this is meant to be a 32bit dos (using a dos extender) app, or a Windows app.

Currently in a DOS application...
Link with BGI32.dll.  All the BGI32 drivers use the .dll extension instead of .bgi, .bgx.  The font files are the .fnt files.  The only bbgi functions you can't use are installuserdriver and registerbgidriver.  The only difference is with the detectgraph function which returns more vga types.
If my answer is insufficient, you should give me an F so your question will go back to the queue to be answered by others.
