Cheers!

You can use foreach cycle. E.g. like this:

foreach(string fileName f in Directory.GetFiles("SomeDirectory"))
{
    ...
}

You dont.. Its a predefined class in .net - have a check in your helpfile, its clever and tells you what references (if necessary) and what "using" statements you would need

How can I declare it?

Have you looked at what you get in the foreach loop?
OK while that code wont work specifically it has a big raving clue in it...

What do you think the clue is?

When you call GetFiles method, it return to you an array of strings (filenames). To show them in the message, you should organize them in way, that you like into a string. After that you can see here a bit about showing messages: MessageBox Class
