I am looking for a solution to hide (and possibly change) the cursor in DOS console application. I am using WinNT 4 and Vis C++ 6 to compile. I read an answer by neitod stating:
In DOS use int 10H Sub-function 1
Set AH to 1
CH to the cursor start line 0-15
CL to cursor end line 0-15.
and execute interupt 10H.
To make cursor dissapear set the start and end lines 0. To make the a big block cursor set start to 0 and end to 15.
I am ABSOLUTELY confused by all this, but this seems to be the way to go. If someone could explain how to get this working, and if possible, supply me a simple source code to get this working, I would be very thankful. Thnx!
