Is there anything wrong with this piece of code ? It's opening the file , yet it doesn't write on it.

fl = new FileStream(path, FileMode.OpenOrCreate);

sw = new StreamWriter(fl);

sw.WriteLine("Hello ");

Hi Jayden,

The proper way of doing this would be:

using (StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(new FileStream(path, FileMode.OpenOrCreate)))

    sw.WriteLine("Hello ");

This will call sw.Flush(), sw.Close() and sw.Dispose().
