i remember that in Qbasic i could assign values to variables from a text file. (not in the code inside.). How to make the same in VB.NET?
Thanks in advanced.
QBasic! Haven't thought of that in about 15 years.
I don't recall the specific functionality that you are referring to, but in VB.NET, you could just open the file with a filestream, and parse the data out of it.
An example might be something like this:
Dim file As New IO.FileInfo(<FileName>) Dim Stream As IO.FileStream Dim FileString As String = String.Empty Stream = New FileStream(File.FullName, FileMode.Open) Dim reader As New StreamReader(Stream) FileString = reader.ReadToEnd reader.Dispose()
At this point you have the whole file as a string. You could then parse the string to find the value(s) you are looking for. It all depends on the structure of the text file.
Hope that helps.
