Telerik Rad Zip add file example


How do I create a zip archive and add an already existing file to it?

The telerik example shows how to add a file they just created, not what I'm looking for.

As I originally wrote,  the Telerik example shows how to add a file they created through a stream.

That's not what I want, I want to add to a zip archive.

It's not very clear (to me at least) how that's done.

It wasn't far off the example, but here it is:

    Sub Main()
        Dim bytes As Byte() = Nothing
        Using ms As New MemoryStream()
            Using zip As New ZipArchive(ms, ZipArchiveMode.Create, False, Nothing)
                    Using entry As ZipArchiveEntry = zip.CreateEntry("testInArchive.docx")
                        Dim entryStream As Stream = entry.Open()
                        Using stream As New FileStream("C:\ITSalesDev\test.txt", FileMode.Open)

                        End Using
                    End Using
                Catch e As Exception
                End Try
            End Using

            bytes = ms.ToArray()

            Using stream As FileStream = File.OpenWrite("c:\itsalesdev\")
                stream.Write(bytes, 0, bytes.Length)
            End Using
        End Using
    End Sub
