Record copied to memory stream

My program first stores values in a record type which contains integers and strings. Because this record is passed to an ISAPI program, the record is loaded into a memorystream using TMemoryStream.WriteBuffer. This happens on the client size.

On the server side (the ISAPI DLL), the bytes are then stored in a Pointer type :

 lpbData: Pointer;                 // pointer to cbAvailable bytes

I then want to copy what is in lpbData back into a record identical to the one at the client site.

What is the best way to do that to ensure the record at the server is intact ?

YOu can type cast the pointer...something like that would do it ....

NewTMyRecord := TMyRecord(lpbData^);

Something like that...
