How to catch Console window content from windows project?


I have a DLL that display message in the Console window. My program was
previously compiled as a console project and the output was readable
from the shell/dos window. Now that my project is compiled as a windows
project, I don't have the shell/dos window anymore, how can I get the
previous output to be displayed in a listbox?

I can see it from the output window of VS.NET but I want it from the
application itself.

Why dont you ouput messages to a file?
Or otherwise instead of all the Console.WriteLi nes just output all
status messages to a stream in code, and have a command line parameter
that decides whether that stream is bound to a file, to the console, or
to some other stream.

That will let you do what you want and also give you a lot of

I got a project called "Forms" that hold some forms and stuff in my solution. A argument at startup defines wether to use a From or Console. My plan was to create a myConsole class that would also allow my application to display a Console, but i don't seem to be allowed to do this. I don't see any References that i need to add, so how do i do this.

Hi All I have a server based C# console application. This application must hide its console window when its launched out on the field. So I dutifully P/Invoke'd FindWindow/ShowWindow combination to hide the console window at launch time. The application (for legacy reasons) hangs around by waiting on an old- fashioned Console.ReadLine() statement.
