Populate list vist from text with visual basic .net

I have some output from Linux server that I would like to display in a list view.  I would like to remove the first 2 rows and show the rest.  Depending on the search , the number of rows can change.  Here is what the output looks like:


 Job Name Last Start Last End ST Run Pri/Xit
 ____________________________ ____________________ ____________________ __ _______ ___

How can I change my string to populate a list view, but remove the first 2 rows?

Dim lines As var = File.ReadAllLines(filePath).Skip(2)
For Each line As var In lines
    listView1.Items.Add(New ListViewItem(line.Split(' ')))
Next

Open in new window


that will get you all the lines besides the first 2, and populate your listview

Thanks!  I had to make some changes because of the way time could be displayed.  Here is what I ended up with

 'parse results and fill listview
        Dim intCount As Integer = 0
        ListView1.Items.Clear()
        Dim item1 As ListViewItem
        For Each line In strResults
            intCount += 1
            If intCount = 1 Or intCount = 2 Then
                'skip first 2 lines
            Else

                Dim strSplit() As String = line.Trim.Split(" ")
                item1 = New ListViewItem
                item1.Text = strSplit(0).ToString
                'figure out if a time is listed
                If strSplit(1).Trim = "-----" And strSplit(2) = "-----" Then
                    'MsgBox(line & "    *********NO TIME")
                    item1.SubItems.Add("NA")    'start time
                    item1.SubItems.Add("NA")    'end time
                    item1.SubItems.Add(GetStatus(strSplit(3)))  'status


                ElseIf strSplit(1).Trim = "-----" And strSplit(2) <> "-----" Then
                    'MsgBox(line & "    *********STOP")
                    item1.SubItems.Add("NA")    'start time
                    item1.SubItems.Add(strSplit(2) & " " & (strSplit(3)).ToString())  'end time
                    item1.SubItems.Add(GetStatus(strSplit(4)))  'status

                ElseIf strSplit(1).Trim <> "-----" And strSplit(3) = "-----" Then
                    'MsgBox(line & "    *********START")
                    item1.SubItems.Add(strSplit(1) & " " & (strSplit(2)).ToString())  'end time
                    item1.SubItems.Add("NA")    'start time
                    item1.SubItems.Add(GetStatus(strSplit(4)))  'status

                Else
                    'this is will show both start and stop time
                    'MsgBox(line & "    *********BOTH")
                    item1.SubItems.Add(strSplit(1) & " " & (strSplit(2)).ToString())  'end time
                    item1.SubItems.Add(strSplit(3) & " " & (strSplit(4)).ToString())  'start time
                    item1.SubItems.Add(GetStatus(strSplit(5)))  'status

                End If


                ListView1.Items.Add(item1)


            End If
