I'm trying to make an application which communicates with windows command prompt and I have 3 questions:
1) How can I subtract last character from a textbox Text1 and show the rest of chars(except that last one) in txtbox Text2?
For example:If this is written in Text1: "This is test line1" how can I subtract its last character so I get this in Text2: "This is test line" ?
I've tried this:
a = Len(Text3.Text) - b
Text4.Text = a(the number of chars without that last one is shown in text4.)
2) How can I "find" the group of certain characters(a word for example) among other characters(other words) in textbox and then delete that certain group of chars?
Text written in textbox Text1 is: "cmd /c cd..&&cd&&dir&&cd ASDF&&cd"
Now, how can I select a word "dir" in that line in Text1 and delete it without changing the rest of that line?
3) how can I achieve that when I type "cd.." the program automatically adds "&&cd" anywhere in that textbox(not only in the beginning of the line)?
