I have a 1 dimensional array string that has maybe the most 5 known items in it. I want to output each however many may be in the array string to a label on my form in the format like "I have a total of item1, item2, item3, item4, item5 in my array". Here's how my array looks like:
Dim dirs As String() = Directory.GetFiles(C:\, "*.txt")
For each name in dirs
mylabel.text = name >>> need each item to be here. Only ouputing last item.
Path.GetFileName can be used to get just the file name from a full file path, and
String.Join can turn the array into a comma separated string. Combining both with the LINQ
Select method would replace your
For Each loop with:
mylabel.Text = "I have a total of " & String.Join(", ", dirs.Select(Function(x) Path.GetFileName(x))) & " in my array"
There is also
Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension if you don't want the file extension in the output.
