i have two textboxes.

I have a text file that has list of file paths for different scripts used on our network.
the file is setup like this:


i want to only read the lines "C:\Scripts\dnsflush.ps1" -line0 and "D:\N\Exchange\Netservicestop.ps1" -line2 and then iwant to print the line to textbox on the form as a string.

foreach (string line in File.ReadLines("c:\\file.txt"))
    textbox1.text = (line0);
        textbox2.text = (line2);

i have no idea where to start any help would be great Smile | :)

Solution 1

One way of doing it is;

string filename = "yourtextfilepath.txt";
if (File.Exists(filename))
    string[] lines = File.ReadAllLines(filename);
    Console.WriteLine(lines["the line number that you want to print - 1"]);

If you dont want to read all the lines here is another solution but you have to read all the previous line till to the desired line number:

string GetLine(string fileName, int line)
   using (var sr = new StreamReader(fileName)) {
       for (int i = 1; i < line; i++)
       return sr.ReadLine();

Good luck,
