How do you embed a dos console in a windows form using visual basic. I read about possibly using a text box for the out put of the dos console. However I would prefer to see the dos console but either way is fine for me

Hi navajo26354,

Write the following code:

Dim Prc as New Process
Prc.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = False
Prc.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\windows\system\cmd.exe"
Prc.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Normal
Prc.Start()


This will open the command console window for you.

Hi navajo26354,

i think you can't embed to the form because you are initiating it as a processor. Processor can't be made as a child component to the form.
