The third line declaring file is not needed and can be removed.

On the fourth line declare a new StreamReader, instead of System.IO.StreamReader and pass into it fileName, instead of fileName.FullName.

Change these and you are good.

i do it and write this code but code didn't work

DirectoryInfo directory = new DirectoryInfo(System.IO.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory()); string fileName = Path.Combine(directory.FullName, "secretmessage.txt");

using(var reader = new System.IO.StreamReader(fileName.FullName)) {

}
