• Yet another baja question

    I have another "dumb" question :-)

    I've been through the docs several times and can't seem to find a function do move the cursor to a set postion on the screen (example: move cursor to line
    4 3 character spaces in). Any suggestions?

    Right now I'm using a combination of displaying a menu the haveing several ansis that are blank just a homed cursor to handle logins and new user applications. A locate cusor command would greatly simplify this. :-)

    thanks for the help!

    Actually, it can't be done *unless* the callers terminal is ANSI enabled. Then you simply print the ANSI cursor-positioning sequence to the users terminal and the cursor moves.

    You can use some at-codes to make life easier on yourself, such as UP,
    DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, GOTOXY, and so forth (go and look at your documentation
    and check out file:///sbbs/docs/customization.html about halfway down for details). Or you can emit the ANSI sequences directly. Google for
    something like "ANSI control sequences" for more details.
