Hello, i'm having trouble opening a text file to process and order the data in it. When i try to read the first line of characters an error message occurs saying: 'Variable words1 is used before it has been assigned a value.' I dont understand what i am doing wrong when opening the file. Also, I am sorry if this is a rather basic question.
Public Class frmAssign6 Dim sr As IO.StreamReader = IO.File.OpenText("words.txt") Private Sub btnProcess_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnProcess.Click Dim words1 As String 'Line 1? While Not (sr.EndOfStream) words1 = sr.ReadLine End While lstResults.Items.Add(words1) End Sub End Class
