Is there a way to take the output of a batch file and put it into a better looking gui?
 
Say i have a batch file to performs file copies, i would like to hid the cmd window and show the screen output in a better looking gui.
 
Is that even possible?

antmar904,

Yes, but why not use AutoIt to do the copying and make it all much easier? :huh:

If you need to stick with the batch files then you will find a lot of examples on the forum how to hide the DOS window and grab the output of the copy commands.

Thank you for your replies,

@Melba23 The file copy was just an example.

@Water I just wasnt sure if Stdout was what i was looking for.

Would i be able to hide the batch file while the file copy is being performed and show the current copies as they are happening in a Autoit Gui with Stdout/Stdread?

Or would i have to wait until that process is closed to show the output?

Check function "Run" for the show_flag to hide the window and "StdOutRead" for examples how to process the output to the window.
