Hi Elena. Thank you. We will look at the problem (in fact I think you have been contacted with a solution).

The simple solution:

1) Modification of the declaration in file

Code: Select all

predicates setConsoleCursorPosition : (fileHandle ConsoleOutputHandle, unsigned CursorPosition) -> booleanInt Result language apicall.
2) Modification of the implementation in file

Code: Select all

clauses         setLocation(coord(X, Y)) :-         CoordU = bit::mkUnsigned32(X, Y),         Result = setConsoleCursorPosition(console_api::getStdHandle(stdOutput_handle), CoordU),         if Result = b_false then             LastError = exception::getLastError(),             exception::raise_NativeCallException("SetConsoleCursorPosition", LastError, [])         end if.
Works perfectly.
I wish good luck.
