I have a text file that is tab delimited. I have been using this code to read comma delimited files. What is the correct syntax to change this to tab delimited?

// Set up the Delimiters used in the file
tfp.Delimiters = new string[] { "," };
// True if data fields can be in double quotes
tfp.HasFieldsEnclosedInQuotes = true;
// This means that it is a delimited and NOT a fix width file
tfp.TextFieldType = FieldType.Delimited;
// Remove white spaces from begining and ending of each field
tfp.TrimWhiteSpace = true;
