[solved] ReadConsole

Recommended Posts

Yohomyth    108
I'm trying to use ReadConsole, but the result is always madness!! #define MAX_INPUT 256 ReadConsole( hInputConsole, szInput, MAX_INPUT, NULL, NULL ); When i WriteConsole szInput, it just looks like a bunch of =======================================22222 or something. is there something strange to know about ReadConsole, or is there a better Win32 function out there? SOLVED: the fourth parameter can't be NULL

that helped a bit. i nulled szInput, but it just came out null, so apparently i'm putting something wrong into ReadConsole. i'll try to figure that out.

This might not be suited to your program, but whenever I need to use the console, I declare two std::fstreams:


std::ifstream conin("CONIN$");
std::ofstream conout("CONOUT$");


Which achieves the same result, but using the STL. It results in me having to do less work, which is always good [grin].
