I have the following loop that I want to continue until every line in SR (StreamReader) has been read and outputted. What condition should I add to the Do While Loop to have it read all the lines?

        Do While (strLine ???)            
            strLine = SR.ReadLine                               '// Read in line
            If strLine Is Nothing Then
                MessageBox.Show("Unable to extra data, please try again. If it continues to fail, please contact Brian L.")
                Exit Sub
            End If
            '// Output line when it contains useful info
            If strLine.Contains("Gi") Then
            End If
