Using VB I want to create a new text file and write a line of text.

I am going through the article:
http://www.techrepublic.com/article/read-and-write-text-files-with-visual-basic-net/1045309

I have managed to create a new text file.

I now want to write a line to the text file.

When I execute my WRITE code I get an error.

I think this because of create method is still holding on to the file.

How do I release the file to allow me to write to it?

Can you show what you have so far ...

Easiest example to create a file and write to it

   
Dim TextFile As New StreamWriter("test.txt")
    TextFile.WriteLine("Line 1")
    TextFile.WriteLine("Line 2")
    TextFile.Close()

Open in new window
