Show message Box in .net console application

How to show a message box in a .net c# or vb console application ?
Something like:

Console.WriteLine("Hello World");
MessageBox.Show("Hello World");


or

Console.WriteLine("Hello")
MsgBox("Hello")


in c# and vb respectively.

Is it possible?

Answer

We can show a message box in a console application. But first include this reference in your vb.net or c# console application

System.Windows.Forms;

then you can do the below code for c# console application:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
namespace ConsoleApplication6
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {


            MessageBox.Show("Hello World");
        }
    }
}

For the vb.net application you can simply code after inclusion of above mentioned reference

Module Module1

    Sub Main()
        MsgBox("Hello")
        Console.ReadKey()


    End Sub

End Module

Reference:

To add reference in vb.net program right click (in solution explorer) on your project name-> then add reference-> then .Net-> then select System.Windows.Forms.
To add reference in c# program right click in your project folders shown in solution explorer on add references-> .Net -> select System.Windows.Forms.
