    How can I read the contents of a text file?

    Hey, folks!

    How can I read the contents of an external text (TXT) file? Once I open it using the File/Folder object, how I can read that file's contents?

    Thanks for your help!

    Notepad in windows, or any text editor.

    Marv, I believe he was asking how to read a text file in an MMF2 application.

    Try my Textfile Object: http://www.clickteam.com/epicenter/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=230258#Post2302 58

    Hey, Jaffob!

    I had tried your Textfile object--or, I should say, I looked at the actions in it. It seemed that there was only one action which allowed you to write text to a text file. But there didn't seem to be an action to read a text file.

    Did I look at your object incorrectly?

    Thanks for your help (as always)!

    There's an expression for that, not an action
