Does anyone know of ways to use these applications (ipconfig,ping,nslookup) within C#. I want to use these applications in the background and don't want the user to see usage of these applications. Thanks for any help.

using System.Diagnostics;



            private void DOSCommand()
            {            
                  Process myDosCmd = null;
                  ProcessStartInfo qOptions = new ProcessStartInfo("cmd.exe", @"/C net send pc-02-49 This is a text Message");
                  qOptions.RedirectStandardOutput = false;  // set to "true" to enable logging
                  qOptions.UseShellExecute = true;  // set to true to make silent/background
                  qOptions.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;

                  myDosCmd = Process.Start(qOptions);
                  myDosCmd.WaitForExit();
                  
                  //Logging commands
//                  string dosOut = DOS.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();
//                  Console.Write(dosOut);

The above code is for the net send command but everything else works exactly the same.

Here is the code (altered slightly) to ping my own computer (although the window is not hidden like you would expect it to be)

:-(



            private void DOSCommand()
            {            
                  Process myDosCmd = null;
                  ProcessStartInfo qOptions = new ProcessStartInfo("cmd.exe", @"/C ping pc-02-49");
                  qOptions.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
                  qOptions.RedirectStandardOutput = true;  // set to "true" to enable logging
                  qOptions.UseShellExecute = false;  // set to true to make silent/background
                  
                  myDosCmd = Process.Start(qOptions);
                  myDosCmd.WaitForExit();
                  
                  //Logging commands
                  string dosOut = myDosCmd.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();
                  Console.Write(dosOut);
            }
