Hi Experts,

I've created a little notepad clone... What I want to do is to be able to write the word - 'ping' followed by 'UNC' and on carriage return... launch CMD.exe and be able to ping that UNC. or to be able to highlight the word 'ping unc' and click a button which will do the same.

I've created the winform with a textbox and a button. It also has a process which launches CMD.exe. But haven't managed to get the selected text to populate cmd.

I've tried console.writeline(textbox1.text)

But didn't work  :(

Any ideas?
I may increase points as I'm sure i have a few tweaks to add...
