File into textbox? What do you want exactly? Please improve your question!
Of course it return an array, because it is the array of file names. Do a loop or whatever you want...

i want all selected filenames with extensions.

There you have it in that array, but how do you intend to process them? Do you need them as a comma separated list or what?
Member 9501115 30-Mar-13 8:49am
yes..i need with ';' separator

Okay so do it. What is the problem exactly?
Member 9501115 30-Mar-13 9:03am
i m not able to split this array
ThePhantomUpvoter 30-Mar-13 9:22am
What do you mean you are not able? It's an array.... what is there to split? Maybe you should improve your question and clearly explain the problem. Why can you not write a for or foreach loop to go through the array? Why are the array indexers not working for you? Do you want all of the filenames in one string or just one string?

Try this:
FileAttachtxt.Text =String.Join(";", openFileDialog1.SafeFileNames);
