There is no answer to your question in terms of the Standard C++ (the only
subject of this newsgroup) because Standard C++ has _no_means_ of keyboard
control. You need to ask in a newsgroup for your OS.

BTW, your question is kind of covered by the FAQ (see section 15). Please
read the FAQ before (or instead of) posting lame qstns.

USENET is not chat. Please take the time to write complete words. Don't
write 'qstn' for 'question'.

Next, always use Google.com's Groups page to search for answers first. You
would find the non-Standard header <conio.h>, then you would find that
subsequent discussion of functions like 'getch()' get the best results on
compiler-specific newsgroups. Raw C++ cannot interpret input strings without
an <Enter>.

I'm using VB.Net. I've tried using Console.Read() but it requires a line-terminator before it finishes (doesn't that mean it's functionally equivalent to ReadLine() -- why have it then?). I've tried Console.In.ReadBlock(), too, with no success. So, along these lines, how would I implement, simply, a "Press Any Key to Continue" routine or, more complex, a text menu in a Console app to get a single character? i.e.

I am wanting to stop my console application and see the information which has been written to the console at a certain point in my program.

I know it is very simple,, but I just can not remmeber....

I got a project called "Forms" that hold some forms and stuff in my solution. A argument at startup defines wether to use a From or Console. My plan was to create a myConsole class that would also allow my application to display a Console, but i don't seem to be allowed to do this. I don't see any References that i need to add, so how do i do this.

Sorry for very silly question. But, how can I input an integer from keyboard in C# Console applications? Like this, in C++ code: "int i ; cin >i ;" I just read some tutorials about C#, and I can get a "string" from keyboard, but I can't get an integer. Thank you in advance.

Hi, I am attempting to detect mouse clicks from within curses, using "select" on sys.stdin. It is working great within an xterm under X, but not very well in a "real" linux console. When I click my mouse while on the "real" console, nothing happens at first, even on repeated clicks. Once I press a keyboard key, I see a "409" in my trace, indicating the mouse event. The next keystroke will bring up the two keyboard events. The additional...

C# novice... Can I create a console application (think the Pine email reader or even 'edit' in DOS) where I can use my up/down/side arrows to move around the app? I'd want something with a simple menu system as well as popup functionality. Any hints/pointers to get me started?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
