I have used a StreamReader for reading file. How do I show the data in UI ?

You want to just read that as binary file and show or convert that file to redable format and show?

Have you seen Billy Madison?

That is really not an easy question to answer, because we have no idea what part of that file is "data" as far as you are concerned.

There is text in there, I can read it, but my guess is that is a library index of some form.

Author: Joan Giesecke
Title: Fundamentals of library supervision, c2005.
Publisher: McNeil, Beth
ISBN: 978--600-5489-04-0 (could be just an EAN-13 barcode, holding an ISBN - 978 is the right code prefix for that).

Computerised processing? Much more complex, and I would rather have the file format spec. You could work it out probably, if you had half a dozen or so samples, though.

Good luck: you will probably have to do some work to find out the file format, and then write your own processor to parse it.

Nice answer. And correct with file format specification.
