I used Windows API in my vb.net program to clear screen.
It works from telnet session using ANSI terminal. But when I executed the same program  using a vt220 emulation terminal, the user input will not be cleared.
Any help will be appreciated...

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply.

I use console.writeLine("\033[H\033[J") in vb.net, but it prints the the exact string.
Any idea for that?

Thanks again for your help.
