Hi everyone.
I have created some vb net programs in visual studio. Doesent matter what programms they are. They include some labels and text boxes. The question is how can i save a file on a specific folder as a program's file with current textbox values and then when i click on that file open my programm with these values. As so many programs do like office where you can save a word, excell, power point file etc and when you re open it it loads the last project.
I cant find nothing similir on the net

What I have tried:

I tried Google search to get some ideas but i didnt find anything about that ...

There is two parts to this question;
You need to create a File Association - this tells the operating system what application to open the file with
You need to pass the file name & path to the application

Nice little demo program on creating a file association is below - quite old but nonetheless suitable
File Association in VB.NET[^]

Once you have done this you would retrieve the name and path of the file using the Command Line Arguments

Kind Regards
