Heres my problem. I have 2 forms.
Form 1 contains a menu strip and data grid view
Form 2 Contains a Button and a bunch of other controls to help create the file.
How I'm doing this
Private Sub BtnRecord_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles BtnRecord.Click Dim Bookz As String Title = TxtTitle.Text Author = TxtAuthor.Text Stock = TxtStock.Text Price = TxtPrice.Text Genre = RadButFiction.Text Genre2 = RadButNonFiction.Text If TxtAuthor.Text = "" Or TxtPrice.Text = "" Or TxtTitle.Text = "" Or TxtStock.Text = "" Then MessageBox.Show("Please fill in all required text boxes, they are marked with a * .") ElseIf RadButFiction.Checked = False And RadButNonFiction.Checked = False Then MessageBox.Show("Please select a category.") ElseIf RadButFiction.Checked = True Then Bookz = (Title & "," & Author & "," & Stock & "," & Price & "," & Genre) Else Bookz = (Title & "," & Author & "," & Stock & "," & Price & "," & Genre2) End If S = IO.File.AppendText("Booklistz.txt") S.WriteLine(Bookz) S.Close() TxtTitle.Clear() TxtAuthor.Clear() TxtStock.Clear() TxtPrice.Clear() RadButFiction.Checked = False RadButNonFiction.Checked = False
So I use a streamwriter which I dim as string in the public class to make it easier.
This code is working fine.
My problem is in this code, not so much a problem as much as I don't know how to go about doing it.
I use an openfiledialog to import the textfile which was created above into the datagridview.
I ran into several problems with this code, so if anyone could please guide me into how I would go about doing this. I would be greatly appreciative.
Dim textfile As String Try OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog() textfile = OpenFileDialog1.FileName DGVBooks.DataSource = IO.File.ReadAllLines(textfile) Catch ex As Exception End Try
Novice at this I'm trying to import the data so it looks like the attached capture below ![bd1401fb65480c8bd92bea109464a0eb]
