Textbox + Button ? launching command from "cmd.exe" How?

Hi experts,
I just want to ask a simple procedure of my simple form. My form has a
input textbox and a button.

I want this if you can help me:

Application user types a command prompt command like "dir" into
"textbox", then after clicking "button", command prompt(cmd) should
run with the prompt that user has written already into "textbox" .

I managed to run command prompt with this code, but the problem is how
to use command prompt with textbox+button?

Private Sub Button1_Click(B yVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArg s) Handles Button1.Click
System.Diagnost ics.Process.Sta rt("cmd.exe")
End Sub

For example user enters "dir" into textbox, then clicks "button" after
that command prompt is opened and lists file of the current directory?

How to implement this?

Also if you explain how to use command with parameters like "dir /a"
in VB.NET?

Very thanks.
