I am adding files to a ComboBox like so:

For Each fReports As FileInfo In dirReports.GetFiles

I need to be able to list the contents of the appropriate file when the user selects an item. The listing part I already have figured out. What I need to know is how to loop through the items and then commit then action on that file.

I tried this:

For Each item As FileInfo In tscboxReports.SelectedItem
'Do Work

I also tried it as an Object, but it still did not work.

This is the error I've received:

Unable to cast object of type 'System.IO.FileInfo' to type 'System.Collections.IEnumerable'.

The error is the same no matter if I loop through them as 'Objects' or 'FileInfos'.
