Hey
I want to know .
How to start process after select it from OpenFileDialog

OpenFileDialog ofd = new OpenFileDialog();
            ofd.Title = "XXXXXXXXXXX";
            ofd.Filter = "xxxxxxxxxxxx|xxxxxx";
            if (ofd.ShowDialog() == System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK)
            {
                this.textBox1.Text = ofd.FileName;
            }

It should put the line path of the file Ive selected to textbox1
Now , I want to make a button to launch that item I;ve selected from openfiledialog.
For example:
browse.. -> selected firefox.exe
button named 'Start' to start firefox.exe that I've selected


can anyone help me?

As Dominic said you should Process.Start method.

You can code to your button click event such as:
Process.Start(textbox1.Text);

Here are some detailed links for you:
