What i am trying to do is save text from a number of text boxes to a user named file then subsequently be able to reload the data back into the same text boxes at a later date.
so far i have this which was provided for elsewhere on the web, this allows me to save comma delineated data to a file which is fine but i can't seem to reload the data. As an experiment i have just tried to reload it back into a rich text box to see if the process would work but nothing as yet.
Private Sub SAveToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SAveToolStripMenuItem.Click Dim savedfile As String savedfile = TextBoxinc1.Text & "," & TextBoxinc2.Text & "," Dim Save As New SaveFileDialog() Dim myStreamWriter As System.IO.StreamWriter Save.Filter = "Text Format [*.txt*]|*.txt|All Files [*.*]|*.*" Save.CheckPathExists = True Save.Title = "Save" Save.ShowDialog(Me) Try Catch ex As Exception End Try myStreamWriter = System.IO.File.AppendText(Save.FileName) myStreamWriter.Write(savedfile) myStreamWriter.Flush() Try Catch ex As Exception End Try End Sub Private Sub OpenToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles OpenToolStripMenuItem.Click Dim Open As New OpenFileDialog() Dim myStreamReader As System.IO.StreamReader Open.Filter = "Text Format [*.txt*]|*.txt|All Files [*.*]|*.*" Open.CheckFileExists = True Open.Title = "Open" Open.ShowDialog(Me) Try Open.OpenFile() myStreamReader = System.IO.File.OpenText(Open.FileName) RichTextBox1.Rtf = myStreamReader.ReadToEnd() Catch ex As Exception End Try End Sub End Class
