System() command opens a dos-box
Hi there - I think this is probably a simple problem to fix, but I can't find the solution anywhere.
When I use the system() command to open a file, eg...
The document opens up fine in acrobat reader, and all works well. But at the same time, a dos box with the command showing opens up as well, clearly the spawner of the command.
This dos box will stay on-screen (and on the task bar) until the external program is closed. I don't like that - it's messy. How do I stop it or hide it?
