importing text file results to active frmDocument Window

P: 1
Hi

I have made a user interface for a dos based program, the dos based program stores its results in a text file. Is there a way to import this directly into a active form window or a text box?

thanks

One fairly simple method might be to have a timer control watch the text file (maybe the update date/time?) and when it changes, read the contents into your textbox.
