So sorry to ask this but I'm totally new to .NET and don't know what to look under in help.  I have an application that consists of one entire statement, Console.Writeline("hello").  It flashes so quickly at runtime, I can't read it.  I don't see a pause option????

Thanks : )

Add Console.ReadLine()

If you want to spruce it up a bit:

Console.WriteLine("Press enter to continue...")
Console.ReadLine()

Or if you do not want user input you can use

Thread.Sleep(1000) to sleep the current thread for sometime
