    how to hide the console program?

    Hi everyone,
    I am working on a project that uses Flash to call other executable programs written in C++. Everything is fine except when Flash invokes the executable, the console window shows up on top of the Flash program. Is there anything I could do to minimize or hide the concole window behind the main UI??

    Thanks!

    if you don't need to get user input, use winmain instead

    Code:
    int WINAPI WinMain (HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
                        PSTR szCmdLine, int iCmdShow)
    {
    
      //program
    }
    like create a windows program instead of a console program, and rip out the window creatiion code so you're just left with the main function.

    just to be sure

    Hi there,
    Thanks for the posting! Let me just make sure if I understand your suggestion here.

    For example I have a program written in C++ called report. Do you mean I put all the code in report.cpp at //program and recompile the program in Visual C++? If so, when specifying the project type in Visual C++, should it be Win32 application?

    Thanks@
