C# | How to change BufferWidth of the Console

  • Last Updated : 28 Jan, 2019

Given the normal Console in C#, the task is to find the default value of Buffer Width and change it to something else.

Buffer Width refers to the current width of the buffer area of the console in columns.

Approach: This can be done using the Buffer Width property in the Console class of the System package in C#.

Program 1: Finding the default Buffer Width




// C# program to demonstrate the 
// Console.BufferWidth Property
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
  
namespace GFG {
  
class Program {
  
    // Main Method
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
  
        // Display current Buffer Width
        Console.WriteLine("Default Buffer Width: {0}",
                                Console.BufferWidth);
    }
}
}

Output:



Program 2: Changing the Buffer Width to 100




// C# program to demonstrate the 
// Console.BufferWidth Property
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
  
namespace GFG {
  
class Program {
  
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
  
        // Display current Buffer Width
        Console.WriteLine("Default Buffer Width: {0}",
                                 Console.BufferWidth);
  
        // Set the Buffer Width to 100
        Console.BufferWidth = 100;
  
        // Display current Buffer Width
        Console.WriteLine("Changed Buffer Width: {0}",
                                 Console.BufferWidth);
    }
}
}

Output:

Note: See how the horizontal scrolling bar on the bottom has changed in both the images.
