'VB.Net program to read data from a text file.

Imports System.IO

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        Dim str As String = Nothing

            str = File.ReadAllText("sample.txt")
            Console.WriteLine("Content of file: {0}", str)
        Catch ex As FileNotFoundException
            Console.WriteLine("File does not exist")
        End Try
    End Sub
End Module


Content of file: Hello, how are you.
Press any key to continue . . .


In the above program, we created a module Module1 that contains the Main() function. The Main() function is the entry point for the program. And, we created a local variable str of string type. After that read data from the "sample.txt" text file and print data on the console screen. If a specified file does not exist in the computer system then a file not found exception gets generated and prints an appropriate message on the console screen.
