Windows Form App Within Another Windows Form App

P: n/a
I would like to run a windows form application (app2) within another
windows form application (app1). app2 should be displayed within a
certain area of the windows form of app1 (could be inside a panel or
similar). app1 does not need any control over app2 except for starting,
closing, hiding and showing it. Basically, app1 should look like being
a part of app2 despite the fact that they have no knowledge of each
other (except the app name, of course). Is this possible and if so how?

Thanks

Maybe you should put the winform from the 2 applications to make it MDI
parent and child.

I am writing app1 but app2 is an external app for which I only have the
executable. This app2 I want to integrate into my app1. How would that
be done?

You can't unless the external application was specially written to do that.

Thanks for your response.
What would the application (app1) to do so that it can be hosted in
another application (app2)?

Thanks
