I want to use a CheckedListBox in an application where each item in the ListBox is the name of a folder on my hard drive and for the purpose of reading and writing text files to and from each of these folders I want to ensure that multiple item (a folder) can be selected at any time in the CheckedListBox
 

 
Thanks for reading :-)
 
private void checkedListBox1_ItemCheck(object sender, ItemCheckEventArgs e)
        {
            CheckedListBox.CheckedIndexCollection checkedIndices = checkedListBox1.CheckedIndices;
 
            if (checkedIndices.Count > 0)
            {
                if (checkedIndices[0] != e.Index)
                {
                    checkedListBox1.ItemCheck -= checkedListBox1_ItemCheck;
                    checkedListBox1.SetItemChecked(checkedIndices[0], true);
                    checkedListBox1.ItemCheck += checkedListBox1_ItemCheck;
                }
                else
                {
                    // the user is unchecking the currently checked item, so deselect it...
                    checkedListBox1.SetSelected(e.Index, false);
                }
            }
        }
 
I can select multiple files but my main question is How to select text files from the directory..
 
How can I achieve this via code in C#?

What did you try? Did you try the GetFiles method? Maybe Directory.GetFiles(yourfolder, "*.txt")?

Solution 1

Try this :-
 
On Selected event:-
 
string[] filePaths = Directory.GetFiles(@"FolderPath", "*.txt",
                                         SearchOption.AllDirectories);
 

Loop through this filePaths array and get file names.
