C# | How to change the CursorSize of the Console

  • Last Updated : 28 Jan, 2019

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

Approach: This can be done using the CursorSize property in the Console class of the System package in C#. It gets or sets the height of the cursor within a character cell in percentage.

Program 1: Getting the value of CursorSize




// C# program to illustrate the
// Console.CursorSize 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 CursorSize
        Console.WriteLine("Current CursorSize: {0}",
                                Console.CursorSize);
    }
}
}

Output:



Program 2: Setting the value of CursorSize




// C# program to illustrate the
// Console.CursorSize 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)
    {
  
        // Get the CursorSize
        Console.WriteLine("Current CursorSize: {0}",
                                Console.CursorSize);
  
        // Set the CursorSize
        Console.CursorSize = 100;
  
        // Get the CursorSize
        Console.Write("Current CursorSize: {0}",
                            Console.CursorSize);
    }
}
}

Output:

Note: See the width of the Cursor in both the images.
