My code so far

StreamReader reading = File.OpenText("test.txt");
string str;
while ((str = reading.ReadLine())!=null)
      if (str.Contains("some text"))
          StreamWriter write = new StreamWriter("test.txt");

I know how to find the text but i have no idea how to replace the text in the file with my own

Best Answer

Read the contents of the file Make a replacement with String.Replace . Write the content back to a file

string text = File.ReadAllText("test.txt");
text = text.Replace("some text", "new value");
File.WriteAllText("test.txt", text);
