I am trying to make an app that when you press a button, it reads a textfile, and executes the code inside it.

I am reading the textfile via streamreader (readtoend) , now i would like to execute the code read from the text file...

I already have my Resources which I could use if needed (below)

INITIAL APPROACH:
I was thinking of replacing the values %111% from teh resources with the info of the streamreader and then executing the code....


any ideas how to do this? tried CodeDom but was not able to make it work.

thank you.
