I am looking for a working example of a c# program that loads a text file and allows you to:

1) mark the starting line of the data portion
2) mark the ending line of the data portion
3) mark the starting location of several columns

Basically, with a file of a bunch text, mark off the "data" portion, then give the program the locations of each column allowing it then to break down all the data into rows/columns format.

To mark the columns, I would like the user just to click in the data itself and register the start locations (how many characters over).

Ok, totally new. But in VB 2010 Express. I created a new project and just pasted that code. When I try to run, I get:


Error      1      'Protected Overrides Sub Dispose(disposing As Boolean)' has multiple definitions with identical signatures.      C:\Users\administrator.FRESHGRILL\documents\visual studio 2010\Projects\test\test\Form1.Designer.vb      7      29      test


Error      2      'Private Sub InitializeComponent()' has multiple definitions with identical signatures.      C:\Users\administrator.FRESHGRILL\documents\visual studio 2010\Projects\test\test\Form1.Designer.vb      24      17      test

Error      3      'components' is already declared as 'Private components As System.ComponentModel.IContainer' in this class.      C:\Users\administrator.FRESHGRILL\documents\visual studio 2010\Projects\test\test\Form1.vb      29      13      test

Warning      4      Unused local variable: 'cr'.      C:\Users\administrator.FRESHGRILL\documents\visual studio 2010\Projects\test\test\Form1.vb      254      13      test

Everything between { #Region " Windows Form Designer generated code " } and { #End Region } at the beginning of the code now goes into a separate file with the newer Visual Studios (I think I was using VB.Net 2003 at the time).  You'd have to look closely at the control declarations to figure out how they were laid out.

I'll see if I can find it on my computer and upload an updated version.
