"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

COORD coord;
coord.X = 20; // your X cord
coord.Y = 20; //your Y cord
SetConsoleCursorPosition(GetStdHandle( STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE ),coord);

Open in new window

I'm coding in window32 console not in window application.
  When I told to include "Windows.h". It does'nt mean that it is a windows application. It is just included so that you can access the Windows API.

I have tested the code in a WIN32 console application under Visual C++ 6.0 IDE.

Thanks & Regards,
