console.height readonly property

The console.height property gets the current console height in character. That value depends on the current console window size.

Example


local console = require "console"

console.color = "lightmagenta"

-- get the line in the middle of the console
local ypos = math.floor(console.height/2)

-- scroll "Hello World !" on that line
for i=1,console.width-13 do
	if i>1 then
		console.locate(i-1, ypos)
		console.write(" ")
	end
	console.locate(i, ypos)
	console.write("Hello World !")
	sys.sleep(1)
end
