Take a look at the code below.

I am opening a text file and reading and counting the number of records.
---------------------------------------------------------------
        Dim FileName As System.IO.StreamReader
        Dim strOneLine, strFile As String
        Dim iCounter As Integer
       
        ofdFile.ShowDialog()
        FileName = New System.IO.StreamReader(ofdFile.FileName)
        strOneLine = FileName.ReadLine

        Do Until strOneLine = Nothing
            strFile += strOneLine & ControlChars.CrLf
            strOneLine = FileName.ReadLine
            iCounter += 1
        Loop

        FileName.Close()
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

what would be the best way to take the value of iCounter and create an array to store the results.
I am using iCounter to get the number of elements to set up my array.

thanks fo rthe help.

why do't you use the Array class in .NET, and then you don't need to worry about sizing - the Array will automaticxally be of the correct size:

        Dim FileName As System.IO.StreamReader
        Dim strOneLine, strFile As String
        Dim iCounter As Integer
        Dim MyArray as New Array
       
        ofdFile.ShowDialog()
        FileName = New System.IO.StreamReader(ofdFile.FileName)
        strOneLine = FileName.ReadLine

        Do Until strOneLine = Nothing
            strFile += strOneLine & ControlChars.CrLf
            strOneLine = FileName.ReadLine
            MyArray.Add(strOneLine)
        Loop

        FileName.Close()

Arthur,

I get the following:

'New' cannot be used on a class that is declared 'MustInherit'.

What am I missing?

Actuall, if I use this:

Dim MyArray as New ArrayList

It seems to work.  Thanks!
