Nota

En los ejemplos siguientes solo se muestra la cantidad mínima de código necesario.The following examples show only the minimum amount of code needed. Normalmente, una aplicación real ofrece una comprobación de errores y un control de excepciones más exhaustivos.A real-world app usually provides more robust error checking and exception handling.

Ejemplo: Escritura de texto con StreamWriter de forma sincrónicaExample: Synchronously write text with StreamWriter

En el ejemplo siguiente se muestra cómo usar la clase StreamWriter para escribir texto en un archivo nuevo de forma sincrónica, una línea a la vez.The following example shows how to use the StreamWriter class to synchronously write text to a new file one line at a time. Como en la instrucción StreamWriter se declara el objeto using y se crea una instancia de este, se invoca el método Dispose, que automáticamente vacía y cierra el flujo.Because the StreamWriter object is declared and instantiated in a using statement, the Dispose method is invoked, which automatically flushes and closes the stream.

using System;
using System.IO;

class Program
{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
    
        // Create a string array with the lines of text
        string[] lines = { "First line", "Second line", "Third line" };

        // Set a variable to the Documents path.
        string docPath =
          Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments);

        // Write the string array to a new file named "WriteLines.txt".
        using (StreamWriter outputFile = new StreamWriter(Path.Combine(docPath, "WriteLines.txt")))
        {
            foreach (string line in lines)
                outputFile.WriteLine(line);
        }
    }
}
// The example creates a file named "WriteLines.txt" with the following contents:
// First line
// Second line
// Third line
Imports System.IO

Class WriteText

    Public Shared Sub Main()

        ' Create a string array with the lines of text
        Dim lines() As String = {"First line", "Second line", "Third line"}

        ' Set a variable to the Documents path.
        Dim docPath As String = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments)

        ' Write the string array to a new file named "WriteLines.txt".
        Using outputFile As New StreamWriter(Path.Combine(docPath, Convert.ToString("WriteLines.txt")))
            For Each line As String In lines
                outputFile.WriteLine(line)
            Next
        End Using

    End Sub

End Class

' The example creates a file named "WriteLines.txt" with the following contents:
' First line
' Second line
' Third line

Ejemplo: Anexión de texto con StreamWriter de forma sincrónicaExample: Synchronously append text with StreamWriter

En el ejemplo siguiente se muestra cómo usar la clase StreamWriter para anexar de forma sincrónica texto al archivo de texto creado en el primer ejemplo.The following example shows how to use the StreamWriter class to synchronously append text to the text file created in the first example.

using System;
using System.IO;

class Program
{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {

        // Set a variable to the Documents path.
        string docPath = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments);

        // Append text to an existing file named "WriteLines.txt".
        using (StreamWriter outputFile = new StreamWriter(Path.Combine(docPath, "WriteLines.txt"), true))
        {
            outputFile.WriteLine("Fourth Line");
        }
    }
}
// The example adds the following line to the contents of "WriteLines.txt":
// Fourth Line
Imports System.IO

Class AppendText

    Public Shared Sub Main()

        ' Set a variable to the Documents path.
        Dim docPath As String =
            Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments)

        ' Append text to an existing file named "WriteLines.txt".
        Using outputFile As New StreamWriter(Path.Combine(docPath, Convert.ToString("WriteLines.txt")), True)
            outputFile.WriteLine("Fourth Line")
        End Using

    End Sub

End Class

' The example adds the following line to the contents of "WriteLines.txt":
' Fourth Line

Ejemplo: Escritura de texto con StreamWriter de forma asincrónicaExample: Asynchronously write text with StreamWriter

En el ejemplo siguiente se muestra cómo escribir texto en un archivo nuevo de forma asincrónica mediante la clase StreamWriter .The following example shows how to asynchronously write text to a new file using the StreamWriter class. Para invocar el método WriteAsync, la llamada al método debe estar dentro de un método async.To invoke the WriteAsync method, the method call must be within an async method. En el ejemplo de C# se requiere C# 7.1 o una versión posterior, lo que agrega compatibilidad para el modificador async en el punto de entrada del programa.The C# example requires C# 7.1 or later, which adds support for the async modifier on the program entry point.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

class Program
{
    static async Task Main()
    {
        // Set a variable to the Documents path.
        string docPath = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments);

        // Write the specified text asynchronously to a new file named "WriteTextAsync.txt".
        using (StreamWriter outputFile = new StreamWriter(Path.Combine(docPath, "WriteTextAsync.txt")))
        {
            await outputFile.WriteAsync("This is a sentence.");
        }
    }
}
// The example creates a file named "WriteTextAsync.txt" with the following contents:
// This is a sentence.
Imports System.IO

Public Module Example
    Public Sub Main()
        WriteTextAsync()
    End Sub

    Async Sub WriteTextAsync()
        ' Set a variable to the Documents path.
        Dim docPath As String = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments)

        ' Write the text asynchronously to a new file named "WriteTextAsync.txt".
        Using outputFile As New StreamWriter(Path.Combine(docPath, Convert.ToString("WriteTextAsync.txt")))
            Await outputFile.WriteAsync("This is a sentence.")
        End Using
    End Sub
End Module

' The example creates a file named "WriteTextAsync.txt" with the following contents:
' This is a sentence.

Ejemplo: Escritura y anexión de texto a la clase FileExample: Write and append text with the File class

En el ejemplo siguiente se muestra cómo escribir texto en un archivo nuevo y anexar nuevas líneas de texto en el mismo archivo con la clase File .The following example shows how to write text to a new file and append new lines of text to the same file using the File class. Los métodos WriteAllText y AppendAllLines abren y cierran el archivo automáticamente.The WriteAllText and AppendAllLines methods open and close the file automatically. Si ya existe la ruta de acceso que se proporciona al método WriteAllText, se sobrescribe el archivo.If the path you provide to the WriteAllText method already exists, the file is overwritten.

using System;
using System.IO;

class Program
{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        // Create a string with a line of text.
        string text = "First line" + Environment.NewLine;

        // Set a variable to the Documents path.
        string docPath = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments);

        // Write the text to a new file named "WriteFile.txt".
        File.WriteAllText(Path.Combine(docPath, "WriteFile.txt"), text);

        // Create a string array with the additional lines of text
        string[] lines = { "New line 1", "New line 2" };

        // Append new lines of text to the file
        File.AppendAllLines(Path.Combine(docPath, "WriteFile.txt"), lines);
    }
}
// The example creates a file named "WriteFile.txt" with the contents:
// First line
// And then appends the following contents:
// New line 1
// New line 2
Imports System.IO

Class WriteFile

    Public Shared Sub Main()

        ' Create a string array with the lines of text
        Dim text As String = "First line" & Environment.NewLine

        ' Set a variable to the Documents path.
        Dim docPath As String = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments)

        ' Write the text to a new file named "WriteFile.txt".
        File.WriteAllText(Path.Combine(docPath, Convert.ToString("WriteFile.txt")), text)

        ' Create a string array with the additional lines of text
        Dim lines() As String = {"New line 1", "New line 2"}

        ' Append new lines of text to the file
        File.AppendAllLines(Path.Combine(docPath, Convert.ToString("WriteFile.txt")), lines)

    End Sub

End Class

' The example creates a file named "WriteFile.txt" with the following contents:
' First line
' And then appends the following contents:
' New line 1
' New line 2
