Hi,
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:

C:\Scripts\dnsflush.ps1
C:\Scripts\DFQ.ps1
D:\N\Exchange\Netservicestop.ps1
D:\AD\scripts\ugroups.ps1

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.

C#
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 :)

1 solution

One way of doing it is;

C#
string filename = "yourtextfilepath.txt";

if (File.Exists(filename))
{
    string[] lines = File.ReadAllLines(filename);
    Console.WriteLine(lines["the line number that you want to print - 1"]);
}


If you dont want to read all the lines here is another solution but you have to read all the previous line till to the desired line number:

C#
string GetLine(string fileName, int line)
{
   using (var sr = new StreamReader(fileName)) {
       for (int i = 1; i < line; i++)
          sr.ReadLine();
       return sr.ReadLine();
   }
}


Good luck,
OI
