    reading lines of a text file seperately, in need of a very simple solution

    Right I'm trying to read the lines of a text file in VB in a combo box, this is the code I am using. The problem is that it reads the file as an entire line and therefore displays it as one long string

    Code:
    Imports System.IO
    Public Class Form6
    
        Private Sub SearchBtn_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SearchBtn.Click
    
            Dim Members As String = "C:\Users\ADAM\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\Members.txt"
            Dim TextLine As String
    
            If System.IO.File.Exists(Members) = True Then
    
                Dim objReader As New System.IO.StreamReader(Members)
    
                Do While objReader.Peek() <> -1
                    TextLine = TextLine & objReader.ReadLine() & vbNewLine
                Loop
    
                IDFilter.Text = TextLine
    
            Else
    
                MsgBox("File Does Not Exist")
    
            End If
    
        End Sub
    End Class
    I want the lines set out as they are written to the file:

    094,Frickerman,21 Nicols Road,London,CT9 3RD,12/12/2011,07 March 2012,Gold
    095,Opper,1 Beyom Place,Glasgow,CT9 1RP,13/01/1994,13 March 2012,Gold

    Instead I get:
    094,Frickerman,21 Nicols Road,London,CT9 3RD,12/12/2011,07 March 2012,Gold095,Opper,1 Beyom Place,Glasgow,CT9 1RP,13/01/1994,13 March 2012,Gold
