I'm not sure what you mean by pinning a CMD window to a form, but you can do the following within MVD.
Thanks, yeah I knew you can run a command window by using the OpenFile function. What I'm looking for is to 'PIN' that CMD window to a form or a panel, just like the example of the calculator that K245 showed here: http://myvisualdatabase.com/forum/viewt … 60#p32860. Basically I want to 'redirect' the output of a CMD window into a form or a panel. Say for example I'm running the following command:
Openfile(''c:\*.* e:\backup /S /E", 'robocopy');
I want to the outuput of the console to show in a Form (whether it's using a memo field or other control to hold the strings) or a panel inside of MVD and not showing the command window. That's basically what it it, redirect output to a form in MVD.
Hope that clears out any confusion.
