Hi;

I have 2 buttons, add and remove to append to and delete line (value in textbox) from file in aspx page respectively.

The thing is that I got in the point that the contents of the file must be loaded if it's not postback (first load) to a dropdown.

Is there a sample feasible algorithm for this? or a pseudocode? or the code? (I have to check file's existency or whether it's empty or not to be free of exceptions)

Kind regards.

You can use Page.IsPostback property is true or not. If not true then check whether file exists or not using File.Exists(filename). If exists then read the  file content File.ReadToEnd() , it will return string. If the string is not empty then use in your application. Psuedocode goes like given below.


if(!Page.IsPostback)
{

   if(File.Exists("yourfilegoeshere")
  {

    string content = File.ReadToEnd("yourfilegoeshere")
    if(content.Trim() != string.Empty)
    //has content use it. 

  }
}
