Reset Function

Closes all disk files opened using the FileOpen function.

The My feature gives you greater productivity and performance in file I/O operations than Reset. For more information, see My.Computer.FileSystem Object.

Public Sub Reset()


The Reset function closes all active files opened by the FileOpen function and has the same function as FileClose() without any parameters.


This example uses the Reset function to close all open files and write the contents of all file buffers to disk. Note the use of the Object variable FileNumber as both a string and a number.

' Open 5 files named TEST1, TEST2, etc. 
Dim fileNumber As Integer 
' Open 5 files. 
For fileNumber = 1 To 5
   FileOpen(fileNumber, "TEST" & fileNumber, OpenMode.Output)
   PrintLine(fileNumber, "Hello World")
Next fileNumber
' Close files and write contents to disk.
