How to display a console (output) in window?

If you want to display the output of a console in your own window then you have to create a pipe and use ReadFile to get the info from the console and put it into your window.

have a look at iczellion's pipe tutorial

If you have MASM32, use the console output function StdOut or alternatively, have a look at the source code to see how it works.

Are you wanting to put the output in a Windows window or in a window that pulls up a DOS prompt? If it's the latter then you have to compile it as a console program. If using MASM, choose Console Build All instead of Build All.

I learned that just last week, from these boards.

you actually don't *have* to link as console app to use consoles,
you can always AllocConsole :).

Simple: we have one console (command line) program that have some params. When we run this program it produces some output (e.g. ml.exe). I want to put this output in my windows program (in static box or edit box or...). One example is with RadASM when you compile and link (output window).

Thank you
