DOS Like Program Problems

Recommended Posts

autocomplex

Since I have finished my last project (just small tweaks left) I'm ready for my next project. I think I want to make an all black Gui with white text and a flashing cursor at the end of the last text. I want the user to say things like Open (filename) or Execute (application) or even Go to (address). However, I don't know how to see what someone has written as a trigger.

User Inputs: Open Internet Explorer
If Open then
$string = filename

and so on ...

But how can this be done so it works?

I want a DOS look and feel lol.

Try by creating a GUI using a fullscreen editbox. I cannot tell if you would be able to replicate the "blinking cursor" thing, however, you could easily read and change the data in this editbox this way.
