Hi,

Probably a nice easy question.

How can you change the text in the title bar of a console application using .net 1.1?
I've seems you can use Console.Title in .net 2.0, but it's not available in .net 1.1, which I need to use for this project.

Thanks.

Never mind, I found it myself.

first:
 using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

inside class, import a function from a DLL:
 [DllImport("kernel32.dll")]
 public static extern bool SetConsoleTitle(String lpConsoleTitle);

finally, call the function from within the class:
 SetConsoleTitle("Hello world!");
