Hi, is there an internal module / method to change the colour of the text in the pythonwin?
I am asking this so that I can make more exciting text based games
If you have the Windows OS, here is an example ...
# change color in the python.exe console display (Windows) # color is a two digit hexadecimal number # the first digit is the background # the second digit is the foreground (text) # 0=black 1=blue 2=green ... to E=yellow F=white import os os.system("color F2") # green(2) text on white(F) background
thanks, I used that and a bit of knowledge to make this:
import os, time colours = (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f') def color(i): i = i.lower() if i == 'black': return 0 if i == 'blue': return 1 if i == 'green': return 2 if i == 'aqua': return 3 if i == 'red': return 4 if i == 'purple': return 5 if i == 'yellow': return 6 if i == 'white': return 7 if i == 'grey': return 8 if i == 'light blue': return 9 if i == 'light green': return 'a' if i == 'light aqua': return 'b' if i == 'light red': return 'c' if i == 'light purple': return 'd' if i == 'light yellow': return 'e' if i == 'bright white': return 'f' text_colour = raw_input(""" What colour do you want the text? Black Blue Green Aqua Red Purple Yellow White Grey Light Blue Light Green Light Aqua Light Red Light Purple Light Yellow Bright White """) bgc = raw_input(""" What colour do you want the text? Black Blue Green Aqua Red Purple Yellow White Grey Light Blue Light Green Light Aqua Light Red Light Purple Light Yellow Bright White """) a = color(bgc) b = color(text_colour) c = 'color '+str(a)+str(b) os.system(c) print '' print c time.sleep(3)
I know that this is slightly unnecessary but I can't stand the sight of the above code. I don't know if your colour codes are right (I didn't test them), but this is just a much cleaner way of writing your little program. Just putting the simplicity of Python to good use, that's all.
# this works, but I just don't know if the colour codes are correct... import os, time colourcodes = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f'] colournames = ['black', 'blue', 'green', 'aqua', 'red', 'purple', 'yellow', 'white', 'grey', 'light blue', 'light green', 'light aqua', 'light red', 'light purple', 'light yellow', 'bright white'] def color(i): i = i.lower() return colourcodes[colournames.index(i)] print '\n'.join([c.title() for c in colournames]) txc = raw_input('\nWhat colour do you want the text? ') bgc = raw_input('\nWhat colour do you want the background? ') a = color(bgc) b = color(txc) c = 'color %s%s' % (a, b) os.system(c) print '\n' + c time.sleep(3)
wow thanks, that worked even better, ill post my new import version in a minute
OK, so HostGator for some reason no longer allows gcc/g++ access unless you have a Designated Server account, which is a lot of money to spend just to compile my "Hello World" program. Thus I figured I'd compile at home, then upload. Program is your regular old bare-bones Hello World ...
Hi. I have a form with list box : lst_product, datagridview : grd_order and button: btn_addline. lst_product has a list of product ids selected from database (MS Acess 2013) , grd_order is by default empty except for 2 headers and btn_addline adds rows to grd_order.
Private Sub btn_addline_Click(ByVal ...
Hi, as I was told that my code doesn’t scale well at all, I thought perhaps I’d try to get a better understanding of interfaces/abstract classes and classes and the relationship between them.
I don’t want at this stage work on a big separate project as I've already got plenty ...
