setcolor

Syntax of setcolor

#include <graphics.h>
void setcolor(int color);
 

Description of setcolor

setcolor sets the current drawing color to color, which can range from 0
to getmaxcolor. The current drawing color is the value to which pixels
are set when lines, and so on are drawn. The drawing colors shown below
are available for the CGA and EGA, respectively.
Palette Number  Three Colors
0     LIGHTGREEN LIGHTRED YELLOW

You select a drawing color by passing either the color number itself or
the equivalent symbolic name to setcolor. For example, in CGAC0 mode, the
palette contains four colors: the background color, light green, light
red, and yellow. In this mode, either setcolor(3) or setcolor(CGA_YELLOW)
selects a drawing color of yellow.

Example of setcolor

/* setcolor example */
 
#include <graphics.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
 
int main(void)
{
   /* select driver and mode that supports multiple drawing colors */
   int gdriver = EGA, gmode = EGAHI, errorcode;
   int color, maxcolor, x, y;
   char msg[80];
 
   /* initialize graphics and local variables */
   initgraph(&gdriver, &gmode, "");
 
   /* read result of initialization */
   errorcode = graphresult();
   if (errorcode != grOk)    /* an error occurred */
 
   {
printf("Graphics error: %s\n", grapherrormsg(errorcode));
printf("Press any key to halt:");
getch();
exit(1);   /* terminate with an error code */
   }
 
   /* maximum color index supported */
   maxcolor = getmaxcolor();
 
   /* for centering text messages */
   settextjustify(CENTER_TEXT, CENTER_TEXT);
   x = getmaxx() / 2;
   y = getmaxy() / 2;
 
   /* loop through the available colors */
   for (color=1; color<=maxcolor; color++) {
 
cleardevice();   /* clear the screen */
setcolor(color); /* select new background color */
 
/* output a messsage */
sprintf(msg, "Color: %d", color);
outtextxy(x, y, msg);
getch();
   }
 
   /* clean up */
   closegraph();
   return 0;
}
