Default Reading a text file into a listbox


Hi all,

I have a media program and i am working on a media library and making it save and restore playlists, both of which use very similar methods.

I have got it to save playlists to a text file on multiple lines, but how do i get it to read from this file and add each line as a new item in the listbox?

Real easy use the stream reader class.
be sure to put imports.system.io at the top of your form class.

Code:
dim sr as new streamreader("Path to the file with playlists here") do while sr.peek<>-1 listbox1.items.add(sr.readline()) loop
