1. I am wondering how I would add a function to enable my "Start" Button to open a program from my C:\Users\ Folder. 
2. I am also wondering how I would be able to open a .txt file so that it opens to all four lines in the GUI at once. For example, when I save and open a .txt file with multiple lines and text, it opens the writing in the .txt file to only the top line in the GUI instead of all four lines.
3. I am wondering if there is some way to set a time interval from my GUI to the second program that opens up when I hit the "Start" Button, so that when I send messages through my four lines, they can send at 1-10 second intervals.

Edited 4 Years Ago by broskie

Thread.Sleep(int.Parse(TextBoxTime.Text));

Found this for the intervals between messages, but how would I implement that into my code so that my second program waits the seconds between the messages in the GUI?
 

You can call Process.Start() to start an executable. E.g. Process.Start('notepad.exe') will fire up notepad.
Your text is only appearing the top textbox because that is all you are telling it to do.
If you open a file and want the text to appear in more than one textbox, first store the text file in a string variable

string fileContents = tr.ReadToEnd();

and then set the textbox.Text to the string variable for every textbox you want it to appear in.
