SIFNOk asked:

Open original thread
i have two textboxes.

I have a text file that has list of file paths for different scripts used on our network.
the file is setup like this:


i want to only read the lines "C:\Scripts\dnsflush.ps1" -line0 and "D:\N\Exchange\Netservicestop.ps1" -line2 and then iwant to print the line to textbox on the form as a string.

foreach (string line in File.ReadLines("c:\\file.txt"))
    textbox1.text = (line0);
        textbox2.text = (line2);

i have no idea where to start any help would be great :)
