  If (OpenFileDialog.ShowDialog(Me) = System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK) Then

          Dim FileName As String = OpenFileDialog.FileName

          Dim memo As WPDynamic.IWPMemo

           memo = WpdllInt1.Memo

          If (memo Is Nothing) Or _

              Not memo.LoadFromFile(FileName, False, "AUTO") Then

               MessageBox.Show("Cannot load " + FileName)

          End If

  End If

Tip: In ASP projects you can use Server.MapPath(".") to get the current directory.


   if (!wpdllint1.Memo.LoadFromFile(Server.MapPath(".") + "test.rtf",true,""))

      wpdllint1.TextCursor.InputText("Cannot open file TEST.RTF");



Tip: In case the addon wphttpget.dll was activated using Memo.TextCommandStr(6,1, dll_path )

LoadFromFile can be also used with a http path to load data from a web server.
