C# | How to change the CursorLeft of the Console
  • Last Updated : 28 Jan, 2019

Given the normal Console in C#, the task is to change the CursorLeft of the Console.

Approach: This can be done using the CursorLeft property in the Console class of the System package in C#. This changes the horizontal position of the Cursor. Basically, it gets or sets the column position of the cursor within the buffer area.

Program 1: Getting the value of CursorLeft




// C# program to illustrate the
// Console.CursorLeft 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)
    {
  
        // Get the CursorLeft position
        Console.WriteLine("Current CursorLeft position: {0}",
                                         Console.CursorLeft);
  
        // Get the CursorLeft position
        Console.Write("Current CursorLeft position: {0};",
                                      Console.CursorLeft);
  
        Console.WriteLine(" and now :{0}",
                      Console.CursorLeft);
    }
}
}

Output:



Program 2: Setting the value of CursorLeft




// C# program to illustrate the
// Console.CursorLeft 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)
    {
  
        // Get the CursorLeft position
        Console.WriteLine("Current CursorLeft position: {0}",
                                         Console.CursorLeft);
  
        // Set the CursorLeft position
        Console.CursorLeft = 25;
  
        // Get the CursorLeft position
        Console.Write("Current CursorLeft position: {0};",
                                      Console.CursorLeft);
    }
}
}

Output:
