So I went through the tutorial on how to set up a MusicBee plugin on the wiki, but I was wondering if there was any way to just open a standard console window.
Forms are good but just having something which I could easily send text to (especially with my very rudimentary C# knowledge) would be extremely helpful. Thanks!
(Just as a note, I tried just doing a standard write to the console and tried a few things in settings but I couldn't get anything working)

If it's for piping the output of one program to another, not really sure how I'd go about that, but if it's for debugging a plugin and you're using Visual Studio, you could use Debug.WriteLine(). Remember to import the System.Diagnostics namespace though:

using System.Diagnostics;
