Im adding files to the listbox with a openfiledialog. I want to get the size of all the files that is added to the listbox.

What do you mean by size (bytes, width) ?

Well, if you are waiting for permission, consider it given.
If, on the other hand you want us to help you, then perhaps we need a little bit more information on what you are trying to achieve - what you gave us is a bit vague.

By size, do you mean length? And if so that'd mean the listbox contains a collection of strings. In that case, just use the Length property on each string.


In response to your updated question. Use FileInfo on each path-string and then get the Length property. More info here:[^]
