TextStream Object

Facilitates sequential access to file.

TextStream.{property  | method( )}

The property and method arguments can be any of the properties and methods associated with the TextStream object. Note that in actual usage, TextStream is replaced by a variable placeholder representing the TextStream object returned from the FileSystemObject.


In the following code, a is the TextStream object returned by the CreateTextFile method on the FileSystemObject:

var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
var a = fso.CreateTextFile("c:\\testfile.txt", true);
a.WriteLine("This is a test.");
Dim fso, MyFile
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set MyFile= fso.CreateTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", True)
MyFile.WriteLine("This is a test.")

WriteLine and Close are two methods of the TextStream object.


Close Method | Read Method | ReadAll Method | ReadLine Method | Skip Method | SkipLine Method | Write Method | WriteBlankLines Method | WriteLine Method


AtEndOfLine Property | AtEndOfStream Property | Column Property | Line Property
