Command Function

Returns the argument portion of the command line used to launch Visual Basic or an executable program developed with Visual Basic.

Public Function Command() As String


For applications developed with Visual Basic and compiled to an .exe file, the Command function returns any arguments that appear after the name of the application on the command line, as in this example:

MyApp cmdlineargs


This example uses the Command function to return the command-line arguments in an object containing an array.

Function GetCommandLineArgs() As String()
   ' Declare variables.
   Dim separators As String = " "
   Dim commands As String = Microsoft.VisualBasic.Command()
   Dim args() As String = commands.Split(separators.ToCharArray)
   Return args
End Function
