MS DOS window inside a Form?

What is the easiest way to make run inside a window or text area on a form?  I'm trying to create a small application to program JDK inside a DOS window instead of using Start\Programs\MS DOS prompt for a programming interface.  Thanks for you time in advance and appreciate a constructive reply.

Using a picture box call picHost, call the setParent api with the handle of the command box.

Make sure you destroy the command box when you close the application. I store  all child windows in a collection on the form.


  setparent ll_hwnd, picHost.hWnd
