Yes, this is homework, I'm not asking for a cut/past answer, just a pointer. I think I've developed brain lock form staring at this issue for too long. I'm using VB.Net 2003.
I've created half the assignment, using a form to add records to a text file. The second half is to read from that text file. You do so by selecting the id number from a combo box which then displays the remainder of the information for the record. I'm stuck on how to create an array, filled with values from the text file. Not sure how to proceed with reading only the id number for the combo, and then reading the remainder once the combo is used. Yes, a database would be easier, but this assignment requires the use of a text file. I understand the use of StreamReader, I guess I'm stuck on the loop function to read data into an array, and then displaying the items from the array.
The data in the text file looks like this:
Record ID 1
Record ID 2
Thanks to anyone who takes a stab at giving me a few pointers.
