I would like to save a file in the format of a .txt file. My code below saves the file but I always need to go into properties of that file and select the open as. Also when I open the file there is nothing written in the file.... its blank.

Dim Veldata as new Arraylist

If Me.SaveFileDialog1.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
            Dim Stream As FileStream = New FileStream(Me.SaveFileDialog1.FileName, FileMode.Create)
            Dim streamWriter As New StreamWriter(Stream)
            saveAs = Me.SaveFileDialog1.FileName

            'add the header information
            streamWriter.WriteLine(Now)
            streamWriter.WriteLine("Collected Data")

For intloop 0 to VelData.Count-1 
 streamWriter.WriteLine(Veldata(intloop)
Next
end if

Open in new window
