Hi everyone. I am creating a maze game using glut and everything is done except for one small problem. When the program starts, i get the width and height from the console. My problem, is that after obtaining the information needed, I would like the glut window to come forward (so it isn''t behind the console window). Is this possible? I could disable the console window, but then I wouldn''t be able to get the information from the user. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance "Flies are born the size they are" -- Undisclosed Person
