Open / bind / embed Notepad within your application??
Posted on 2003-11-16
Ok heres what i want but am stuggling to explain it.
I have a form and button1
I want to be able to click button 1 and for it to open Notepad.exe from its usual location.
i want to open notepad (the application and not some kind of .txt file) within a frame / panel within form 1 (like its embedded)
Query Binding object?????
So, embedd Notepad as an application in the form so the user can type etc... in notepad. I am not bothered that the user wont be able to see notepads toolbar.
Would you use an OleContainer for this or some how load it in a panel either way please provide the full source (its probbably better if you spell it out to me!!!)
Hope this makes sense.
Thanks in advance
