Files & Folders


1. File Locations

Using the standard folders provided by the .Net framework can eliminate user access issues.

2. Reading / Writing text files

.Net makes it easy to read and write text files.  All the hard work is done in the background, and the necessary processes are exposed as methods in the My.Computer.FileSystem namespace.

3. Random Access

Visual Basic .Net allows random access to files using the StreamReader class.  The file pointer can be set as required, and data can be read or written as a stream of bytes or as a nominated variable type.
