   Private Sub TryGetLine2()
        Dim filename As String = "Schema.ini"
        ' Show lines 2, 3, and 4.
        MessageBox.Show(GetLine2(filename, 2))
        MessageBox.Show(GetLine2(filename, 3))
        MessageBox.Show(GetLine2(filename, 4))
        'MessageBox.Show(GetLine2(filename, -73))    'Should throw exception.
    End Sub

    Private Function GetLine2(ByVal filename As String, ByVal lineNumber As Integer) As String
        Dim sr As System.IO.StreamReader
        Dim content As String
        Dim currentLineNumber As Integer = 0   ' Initialized to the number for the first line.
        Try
            sr = New System.IO.StreamReader(filename)
            Do While sr.Peek <> -1
                content = sr.ReadLine()
                If currentLineNumber = lineNumber Then
                    Return content
