    Resolved [RESOLVED] endofstream

    Hello
    I am working through a tutorial written in vb.net 2010 . I am using 2010 professional. The tutorial calls for the use of .endofstream , I get an error message (Error 1 'endofstream' is not a member of 'System.IO.StringReader'.

    Code:
      Private Sub loadmap(ByVal mapfile As String)
    
            Try
                Dim sr As New IO.StringReader(mapfile & ".map")
                Dim strline As String = ""
                Dim x As Integer = 0
                Dim y As Integer = 0
    
                Do Until sr.endofstream
    
    
    
                    strline = sr.ReadLine
                    strline = strline.Replace(strline.LastIndexOf(","), "")
                    For Each item As String In Split(strline, ",", -1)
                        If item = "" Then
                            item = 0
                        End If
                        If x <= mapwidth Then
                            map(x, y, 0) = Int(item)
                        End If
                        x += 1
    
                    Next
                    x = 0
                    y += 1
                Loop
                sr.Close()
                sr.Dispose()
            Catch ex As Exception
                MsgBox("map '" & mapfile & "' could not be loaded." & vbCrLf & ex.Message, MsgBoxStyle.Critical, "error")
            End Try
        End Sub
    The best I can do is readtoend which generates a run time error conversion from string "map1.map" to type boolean is not valid

    I have two questions 1)why don't I have endofstream? 2) how do I make the do until loop work correctly?
    Thanks
    George

    Re: endofstream

    You don't have endofstream because System.IO.StringReader doesn't have endoftstream.

    Presumably the tutorial is expecting you to use a System.IO.StreamReader. The answer to most subsequent questions should be addressed in the link below.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dot...r?view=net-5.0

    Good luck.

    I am sorry I did not find the link useful (it is in c# but I ran it through a converter) the tutorial was written in vb.net 2010. I've imported system and system.io (did not help) Consider me to be dense and requiring more explanation and examples.

    Re: [RESOLVED] endofstream

    Thank you! It makes sense now.
    optionbase1 your post WAS helpful.
    I was reading streamreader incorrectly
