Hi NNos2012,

You can get the div tag and can replace the tag in code so that that div will not be visible on front end. I have some code you can try them out...

string replaceString = string.Join(";",
                           File.ReadAllLines("<div id="id1">")
                           ).Replace("@", "<div id="id1" style="display: none;">");
   File.WriteAllText("<div id="id1">", replaceString);

Or try the following code:

// Open a file for reading
StreamReader streamReader
streamReader = File.OpenText(fileName)
// Now, read the entire file into a strin
string contents = streamReader.ReadToEnd();
// Write the modification into the same fil
StreamWriter streamWriter=File.CreateText(fileName);
streamWriter.Write(contents.Replace("String1", "String2"));

Here I am developed Win Form application To delete Div Section from Text file
in my form I have taken Text Box and Button

on click button event
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            string search = "<div id=\"" + textBox1.Text + "\">";
            List<string> lines = new List<string>(File.ReadAllLines("Your File Path"));
            foreach (string line in lines)
                line.TrimStart(); line.TrimEnd();
                if (line.Contains(search))
                    SLineNumber = i;
                if (SLineNumber > 0)
                    if (line.Contains("<div id=") && !line.Contains(search) || line.Contains("<div>"))
                if (line.Contains("</div>") && innerDiv == 0 & SLineNumber != 0)
                    ELineNumber = i;
                else if (line.Contains("</div>") && SLineNumber != 0)
            lblSLine.Text = SLineNumber.ToString();
            lblELine.Text = ELineNumber.ToString();
            if (SLineNumber != 0 && ELineNumber != 0)
                 File.WriteAllLines("Your file Path", lines.ToArray());
                 MessageBox.Show(" Remove the Section of Div " + textBox1.Text);
                MessageBox.Show("Div  id=" + textBox1.Text + "  does not exist");
