C# Code to count number of lines

I am posting this code because i saw many programmers asking "How to count number of lines"

Call below function by passing the file name with the path (e.g:- c:\\Test.txt)as string.

Below function will return number of lines in the file.

public int LineCount(string strFileName)
StreamReader re = File.OpenText(strFileName);
int intCount=0;
string input=null;
while ((input = re.ReadLine()) != null)
return intCount;
