Getting file size

Hi,

Does anyone know how to get the size of an xml file using VB.NET? I
haven't the slightest idea where to begin.

Thanks,
Roshawn

Import System.IO

FileStream stm = File.OpenRead(path)
int length = stm.Length
stm.Close()

For future generations the above code is incorrect:
stm.Length can return long so you should set length to long.

Also you you do not need to instantiate a FileStream object. You instead can:

long size = File.OpenRead(Server.MapPath(path)).Length;

Server.MapPath is because I am working in a ASP.NET enviroment and thus commonly refer to file's virtual path as the absolute path is not always apparent programmatically.
