retrieve int from text file

Hi Experts,

I have an int like this:
int[] input = {1,2};

And I would like to retrieve the int value from a txt file which locate in the first line. The file I have looks like this:
test.txt:
1,2

Open in new window


As you can see that the value of the first line is 1,2 and I wanna import it to:

int[] input = (the first line of test.txt)

As you have notice that the first line is divided by a comma so I wanna save the whole line with the comma to the int[] input.

Note: I am using c# 2008

Thanks in advance
Regards

string[] lines = File.ReadAllLines(@"C:\test.txt");
List<int> inputs = new List<int>();
foreach (string i in lines[0].Split(','))
	inputs.Add(Convert.ToInt32(i));
int[] input = inputs.ToArray();

Open in new window

Change the filename to suit, and you may wish to surround it with try catch in case file can't be opened or it doesn't contain what you expect.

I don't see the problem
int[] input = {1,2};

will give you:
input[0] = 1
input[1] = 2

When you have a string, you can do the following:
string inputString = "1,2";
input = inputString.Split(',');

will give you:
input[0] = 1
input[1] = 2

Hi, but how can I read the first line only and then assign the line value to int[] input? as I might have more than one line.
