_WSetAttr( ) API Library Routine

Changes the attribute for the specified color scheme index in the indicated window's color scheme to the new attribute attr.


void _WSetAttr(WHANDLE wh, int color, int attr)
WHANDLE wh;            /* Window handle. */
int color;                     /* Color scheme. */
int attr;                     /* Attribute. */

The following example goes through each color of each scheme, using _WSetAttr( ) to set the pen color, and then displaying some text in each color.
