Is it possible to have a console window build into a windows form? I know it sounds wierd, but i think it can be done. I would like to be able to execute any dos command from within my application.
The Process class allows you to redirect output to a stream you can read from your code. You might try something along the lines of the following: http://odetocode.com/Code/97.aspx
I also cover how to do this in my book although taking a different approach using COM Interop (since the chapter I did it for was on that subject). The code is freely downloadable at
http://www.samspublishing.com. Oh, the book is called "Microsoft Visual C# .NET 2003 Developer's Cookbook".
The ASP.NET chapter also has a little bare-bones (that needs a little work) web app that displays a command line interface in a web browser to your web server (called WebShell).
That is exactly what i am looking for. Thank You!
