I'm new in programming. I need help from expert. I got a problem to pass parameter from VB to batch file. My code is below to run the batch file and to pass parameter.
Private Sub Button4_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button4.Click
Dim input As String
Dim output AsString
input = "C:\batchFile\test.gds"
Dim batchFile As String = "C:\batchFile\LC_gds2dxf.bat"
Process.Start(batchFile, input & ""& output)
With this code the output is like below:
If you look at the screen shot you can find out that input and output variable is passing to one variable LC_gdsin. But I want that output file location will be assigned to LC_dxfout. I tried a lot but could not able to do that. Can anybody help me in this regard.
I am using VB2010 premium and windows 7 32 bit pc
Solved! Go to Solution.
If your code is as written, you need a space between input and output - your code shows null (change "" to " "). Or, you could add a leading space to the strings in Dim. Or, you could create a 3rd string that combines strings 1 & 2 with a space in between.
Create a test batch file and check (echo) that %1 and %2 are recognized correctly.
