FileSize - HowTo

I get a list of filenames from a directory with the following code, but
I can not work out how to get the filesize of the filename I have just
found.

I guess it is fileinfo.length , but I can not see how to turn my
filename(string ) into a statement which would give me the filesize -
the brain is very slow today. Any help gratefully appreciated.

Dim files() As String = System.IO.Direc tory.GetFiles(r oot,
patt)
dim filename as string
Dim f As String
For Each f In files
filename = System.IO.Path. GetFileName(f)
DropDownList1.I tems.Add(filena me)
..... GET FILESIZE OF ABOVE FILE and add to array
filesizes
Next

Hi Mosscliffe

Try this

for each f in files
dim fi as new FileInfo(f)
dim FileSize as int

FileSize = fi.Length()
next

Regards
Ray

Use System.IO.FileI nfo.Length.

Thank you very much - all now working as envisaged. Just could not
figure it out.

Hello, When I have read a file with x.xxx.xxx.xxx bytes it is sometimes handy to show it in an diverent format than bytes. Is there a handy way to do this? Or is there a function for it? When it is a big file I want to see a MB size and when it is a lower file size then I want to see a kB size for example.
