how to redirect outputs from console to a window form text box,but the console application I'm using is always running real time, thus my .net application hangs until I close the program that is read real time.The code displays the application to a 2nd form with a textbox multi line. Until I close that my entire program hangs and the console application monitored runs.
How do I code it to:
1. Run real time without hanging the entire program.
2. the console app must run at all times. (figured how to hide/ and no window created for it)
Sub Console() Form2.Show() Dim myCon As New Process myCon.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = False
send the text from a certain line in the hidden console window to a textbox in the form, but I need this output while the console application is still running in a hidden window. Since I am going to have multiple instances of this console application running, I have assigned their processes to an array and each have a separate "hidden" console window. After I launch these applications (with different arguments assign to them), they require no input and will run until I ".kill them" using the GUI.The console application was written in the old C and it's source code scares me.
I am creating this GUI "bolt on" application for it in VB.NET 2005 to clean up desktop space (save me from 30 console windows) and to be able to start, stop, and monitor them from a single clean GUI.Attempted solutions:I have reviewed the information [URL]But again, that just tells me how to capture the output of it after the console application has exited, which I already know how to do and I do not wish to kill the application just to see a certain line of it's output as it would obviously interrupt what it is doing.
I am running a command on all computers from a list. I am trying to get back a text file that says PASS or FAIL for each computer. I am using the below StreamWriter and function process. The process runs correctly and it rights to both a data file and an error log. The error log however always says PASS for everything. do I know what to set the if consoleOutput = "????" to?
Using swrr As New StreamWriter(ErrorLog, True) For Each strUserName As String In strLines Dim ConsoleOutput As String = GetCMDOutput(strUserName, saveFileDialog3.FileName & ".txt",
i have an dos exe which take argument, perform its functions and display the output in dos.i need to call the dos file from vb passing the argument without showing the dos window, and get the return values directed to vb textbox.
I made a Visual Basic program that adds an interface to some Windows network diagnostic tools like Ping and Telnet. Currently the program opens a new DOS window and displays the results. For each system you test or each time you hit the button it opens a new window.
What I want it to do is redirect the output back to the program and display it using a List box or whichever is the best choice for displaying results. I have checked out posts that talk about capturing the text and redirecting it back to the program but I can never get those to work.
Is there an easy answer for this or does it entail a lot of additional coding? I am using Visual Studio 2008.
I'd like to have a macro in Visual Studio 2005 that calls a DOS command and redirects the output (stdout and stderr) to a file. Just calling the command and ">" redirecting it will not capture stderr, so there are two parts to this:
calling a DOS command capturing both stderr and stdout to a file during that call
I'd then like to open this file in Visual Studio after the command completes.
I want to launch a file from a VB program and capture the output of that file in a text document.Here's an example:Process.Start("systeminfo.exe > Data.dat")This doesn't work. I get an error that the file cannot be found. I've tried using Shell instead of Process.Start. I've also tried replacing systeminfo.exe with a variable and replacing the redirect portion with a variable.The ultimate goal is to get the text file e-mailed. So, if it were possible to output to the Clipboard, then paste that to a file or directly into an e-mail client that would also work.
i have a form app that needs to get the output of a console app in real time.or as close to it as possible.[code]that is my code so far, and it seems to work great for everything other than the actual console app i need it to.when i use it on ping commands it comes up in my text box perfectly.when i use it with my console app (which i don't have access to the source for) it outputs nothing until the app closes, sometimes.it depends on the arguments given. i am 100% sure it is the way the app is written but there is nothing i can do about it.so is there any way to get the desired functionality some other way?
Based on the title I'm sure you all understand what I want... So, I need to work with CMD through my app. and I searched google and vbforums and I found some solutions but none of them helped me because all I found was either older version like VB.net 2005 like this topic HERE (and this is exactly what I want) and found some in other languages like c# or c++ that I really don't now them..
I've been working on automating our build processes and wanted to come up with a painless way to run unit tests on a regular basis. To that end I've thrown together a simple app that examines the project files and prepares a list of solutions to test. The prototype works in that the tests are executed with the expected results, but as soon as I try to redirect my output the app bombs on the Process.Start call, complaining that a file could not be found.
I've tried several iterations on what I've seen done elsewhere, including several posts here, but I have yet to get this to work properly.

Every time I try and redirect input and output of command prompt I have a problem. The debugger itself crashes! Something must really be wrong. What is a good way to launch CMD and send commands to it, receive output.
I'm working on a little app that requires the results of a dsquery and dsget set in a string for clean up (replacing spaces and other not needed characters).I can display the results of the stream with ReadToEnd - but can't seem to find anything on getting it into a string.[code]
I've got an old dynamic link library that I'm using which was created primarily to be used in a console environment. As such it generally indicates what it's doing through Console.Write(). I've recently created a windows form which is using some of the functions from this library. I'd like to be able to grab the console output and place it in a textbox on my windows form so that the user can have some indication of the progress (right now it just says "Working").
I would like to have my output in columns, and the numbers in two digit after the decimal.
I am writing a data validation app where the app asks the user for input like give me a number of double type: and hopefully the user will comply.
But the app will test some validation rules and then:
1) if the user simply pressed enter the app will tell the user all sorts of reasons why the input was rejected. And that part should look like a table with columns for the entry, if it passed true, otherwise false and then the reason line empty input. Or this number is a string.
I have a console application I'm using to run scheduled jobs through windows scheduler. All the communication to/from the application is in email, event logging, database logs. Is there any way I can suppress the console window from coming up?
I have an application with a String variable that repeated gets a Date from a database, does something with that field, then goes onto the next row. Is there a way I can send send out some debugging information to the stdout console so I can debug better/view the progress of the program?
I have already posted this assignment . The assignment is to create a VB.NET program that calculates the monthy mortgage payment for a $200,000 mortgage with an interest rate of 5.75% for 30 yrs. The program compiles and the interface window comes up but when you click the payment button nothing happens. fix this program because my other 4 assignments are based on this progam. The Visual Studio project file is attached.

I am currently working on an application, where I am using a console application, that will set up the application prior to the main form is run. This is no problem I've got that all working perfectly, the only problem I have is that the console is showing while the application is running, I was wondering whether anyone knows any way in which I would be able to hide the console before it gets shown to the user.
How do I get the console from closing immediatley upon opening in a Console Application program? I have all of the code written but when I run the program it pops up the console window and then immediatley exits so I am unable to read what is in the window to see if my program is operating correctly. This is the first time I've ever used a console window so I don't know where in the code I would need to put "whatever it is" I might need to put to keep the window open until closed by the user.
It sounds confusing but it's not really. What I need is basically a way to emulate the console style text, without using a console. What I'm really doing is trying to do a matrix effect on my form background, by drawing symbols and moving them, alternating their colors (see this video for what I mean).
Is there a way to do this effectively with a timer and a draw event, with the timer calling the draw event and changing the intervals?
I have a fully functional multi-threaded VB2008 console application that I need to convert to a windows forms application. I am doing this to add additional functionality at a later time. How would I go about doing this?
