Show the command line

Does anyone know how to duplicate the functionality of pressing the F2 button in .NET?  I have several commands that write a fair bit of data to the command line, including one that lists individual segments of civil 3d objects and I would like to make the command line appear in a similar fashion to the list command.


Thanks for your help.

Pass a value of False to hide the text window.

Thank you Jeff.  It would be nice if this type of thing were documented in the API.  I see now that searching object browser in Visual Studio does find it, but you have to type 'textwindow' exactly... I searched the web for about 40 minutes before asking this question because I was sure someone must have done so before me.

I'm not disagreeing with that, but.....


namespace Autodesk.AutoCAD.Internal.*


Anything within the 'Internal' namespace is entirely undocumented, and as its name suggests, is for 'internal use only'.
