Question 1: Alright so i have a text box and a button. When i click the button i want it to add the text in the text box, into the middle of a shell command. I.e. Text box say iPod Touch Fans, i want the shell command to be, "Shell("I visit iPod Touch Fans a lot") (Haha example). Any help? This is my third day actually using Visual Basic. Question 2: How would i run 4 command prompt scripts from VB, that all appear in the same command window? Shell("cmd.exe google") Shell("cmd.exe google") Shell("cmd.exe google") Shell("cmd.exe exit") That opens 4 command prompt windows. I need it to be all in the same window. Thank you.
