The _SHELLHIDE function hides the console window and returns any INTEGER code sent by END or SYSTEM when a program exits.


return_code = _SHELLHIDE(command$)


  • The literal or variable STRING command parameter can be any DOS command line or call to another program.


  • QB64 can now return codes sent by program modules when a specified code is added after END code% or SYSTEM code%.
  • The code can verify that a previous SHELL command was executed.

Example: Shelling to another QB64 program will return the exit code when one is set in the program that is run.

returncode% = _SHELLHIDE("DesktopSize") 'replace call with your program EXE PRINT returncode% END

Explanation: To set a program exit code use an INTEGER parameter value after END or SYSTEM in the called program.
