I am trying to duplicate a command prompt with winforms.  I can stream the output of the command prompt to the winform's text box.  I know that I need to use something like the attached code.  But what I don't know how to do is :

1.   How to capture user input & responses
2.   How to send user input & responses to the command prompt I am streaming the output from.
3.   How to display the new user input in the text box and continue to stream the output.
     

     
Using p As Process = New Process
            Dim SR As System.IO.StreamReader
            Dim SW As System.IO.StreamWriter
            Dim NTF As Boolean = True

            p.StartInfo.FileName = Path
            p.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = False
            p.StartInfo.Arguments = Arguments
            p.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden
            p.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = True
            p.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = True
            p.StartInfo.RedirectStandardInput = True
            p.Start()
            SR = p.StandardOutput
            SW = p.StandardInput

            While Not p.HasExited
                Do Until SR.EndOfStream = True
                    rtb1.AppendText("   " & SR.ReadLine & vbLf)
                    Application.DoEvents()
                Loop
            End While
End Using
