Vb.net – Console.Write Not Working In Win Forms App


I created a VB.NET Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio 2008. When I run my program from the command-line, I get no output (only the next prompt).

What am I doing wrong?

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    Console.Beep(800, 100) 'confirm this function is called'
End Sub

EDIT: Can a program have a form and a console?

EDIT2: Ho's answer works. However, the output appears on the next command-line prompt. Can a Winforms application tell the command-line to wait until it's finished instead of immediately returning?

Best Solution

Tested similar code with a C# .NET Windows Form Application. Outputs and beeps nicely within Visual Studio but only beeps when run at the command line.

If I change the Output Type to Console Application under the Application tab for the Project properties, I get to use both the form and console :)
