ArrayList - Text file reader


provide your basic text file reader here, which displays 21 lines of text and allows the user to navigate using the up and down arrow keys, and exit using the ESC key.

The text file reader should have three methods:

ReadFile (reads the text file and stores it in memory)
ShowMenu (clears the console, sets the top and bottom lines of the console [row 23], changes colors using Console.BackgroundColor, Console.ForegroundColor, ConsoleColor and Console.SetCursorPosition(column, row). Once the menu is prepared, remember to set the cursor in the second row).
ShowFrom (writes 21 lines, considering the position of the first line to write)
The main program logic should be as follows: ShowMenu, ShowFrom, ReadKey, ShowMenu, ShowFrom, ReadKey....
