C#: Creating a hybrid CLI and GUI app

Note that you’re probably better off dealing with a CLI app that in turn creates a Windows.Form object. The project I had was already written templated out to Windows.Form, so this is a bit hacky.

Use the following

class ClassyTheClass

[DllImport("kernel32.dll", SetLastError = true)]
static extern bool AttachConsole(uint dwProcessId);

[DllImport("kernel32.dll", SetLastError = true, ExactSpelling =
static extern bool FreeConsole();



Console.WriteLine("I'm writing to your parent process, the host of your console.");

SendKeys.SendWait("{ENTER}"); //hackalicious <a href="http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1305257/using-attachconsole-user-must-hit-enter-to-get-regular-command-line/2463039#2463039">http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1305257/using-attachconsole-user-must-hit-enter-to-get- regular-command-line/2463039#2463039</a>
