Sorry, forgot to tell that detail. No, I am on windows10, using the mars 2 version. I know that Visual Studio is the established tool on there. But I want to give Eclipse a try, for a potentially smooth cross-platform development later on (I hope that is what it is good for). |
1. Is it actually a win32 console app per default, as that is not clear?
And is the actual display of a console a necessity within a win32 console application?
2. is there a way to convert the project to what I want, so that I don't have to start a new project type (and which type should I choose for that matter?)
3. If nothing helps, is there at least a way to tell the app that the console should start minimized so that when the application is in windowed mode the background isn't occupied by the console window.
"windows hide console output"
Thank you. looks like suitable terminology. I googled it with that and already found a satisfying suggestion: I call FreeConsole(); right at the beginning of the main before anything else to hide (or actually delete?) it. Hope it is meant to be done that way and doesn't involve any further steps to do it correctly. So the console won't bother anyone anymore.
But if someone can answer these questions in a bit more detail, it is of course for the better. Thank you guys.
