Re: Hide command prompt using C

I know to do this things by C++,but don't know how to do this with C.So in C++ You can use the functions FindWindow and ShowWindow to achieve this.For instance you can take the following tip for achieving your result:
variable_name=FindWindow("class name", NULL);
If the function fails the return value is NULL.
ShowWindow(variable_name,0);

Re: Hide command prompt using C

All right once you've figured the new process you'd end the current process, and that should quit the command window.Certainly assuming that the command window only came in the first place since you ran a console program. If you invoked the program from the command-line when it was already open, I don't believe the OS is going to let you close it pro grammatically. It's going to require use of Windows libraries, since that's not the kind of thing covered by standard C. You'll obviously want to begin lower than this if you have a lot of issues understanding the examples.
