Ive got some problems how do i say that

One thing you could do is fill the combobox with all the system.Text.EncodingInfo's and set the combobox's DisplayMember to "DisplayName" and the use the System.Text.Encodings.GetEncoding(Ctype(combox.selecteditem,System.text.EnodingInfo).CodePage) to get the encoding.

An easier way is to make a function to return the encoding based on the combobox's string selected item.

Private Sub Button2_Click_1(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        Dim FilePath As String = "C:\No.txt"
        Dim FileStreamWriter As New System.IO.StreamWriter(FilePath, False, GetEncoding)

    End Sub

    Private Function GetEncoding() As System.Text.Encoding
        If ComboBoxEncoding.SelectedIndex = -1 Then
            Throw New IndexOutOfRangeException()
        End If

        Select Case CStr(ComboBoxEncoding.SelectedItem)
            Case "ASCII"
                Return System.Text.Encoding.ASCII
            Case Else
                Return System.Text.Encoding.Default
        End Select

    End Function

Thanks man that worked
