If this is really VB.NET - i.e. a web application - then, no, you can't use a open dialog. That would open on the machine running the VB code - the server - not the client, so the user would never get to see the dialog. And you can't access files from the user machine from server code at all unless the user specifically uploads them to you - so a dialog at the client would be of no use either.

Stop and think about exactly what you are trying to do: if this is a web application then you need to work out where the files are, and how you are going to display them fairly carefully.

If it isn't web based, then explain exactly what you are trying to do, and what problem you have with it - remember that we can't see your screen, access your HDD, or read your mind so we only get exactly what you type to work with. We know nothing about your application, the environment it is supposed to work in, or how you have written it so far!

ah k
Get the file name: OpenFileDialog Class (System.Windows.Forms)[^].
Open and read the file: StreamReader Class (System.IO)[^].
Extract the text that you want and display it in the textbox.
