...Use a Console in non-console Applications?

Tip Rating (6):  
     


{

  For implementing console input/output for non-console applications you
  should use the AllocConsole and FreeConsole functions.
  The AllocConsole function allocates a new console for the calling process.
  The FreeConsole function detaches the calling process from its console.
  Example below demonstrates using these functions:

 **

  Um eine Konsole in Nicht-Konsole Anwendungen zu
  implementieren, verwende die AllocConsole API Funktion auf
  und FreeConsole um sie wieder freizugeben.
  Das Untenstehende Beispiel zeigt, wie man diese Funktionen
  verwendet.

}


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  
s: string;
begin
  
AllocConsole;
  try
    
// Change color attributes
    
SetConsoleTextAttribute(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE),
                                         FOREGROUND_BLUE OR FOREGROUND_GREEN or
                                         
BACKGROUND_RED );
    Write('Type here your words and press ENTER: ');
    Readln(s);
    ShowMessage(Format('You typed: "%s"', [s]));
  finally
    
FreeConsole;
  end;
end;
