How to put and retreive byte array through SAFEARRAY

Hi,

I m relatively new to C++. Can any of them tell me how to put byte array into a safe array and retreive them. I m forced to use this Safe array and i m new to C++. so can anyone post a piece of code for this. Any sample code is appreciated.

Thanks

Whenever I need to use a SAFEARRAY, I use this class:
     http://www.sellsbrothers.com/tools/comvector.h

Then you can write code like this:
     CComVector<BYTE>   vec;

     vec.Create( 100 );  // Create a safe array with 100 bytes
     {
          CComVectorData<BYTE> data( vec );
         
          data[0] = 0x01;
          data[1] = 0x02;
     }

If you need help using those classes let me know.  They include pretty good examples.

Hope That Helps,

Ram,

I'd be happy to provide you with another example, but if I e-mail it to you, then it doesn't help anyone else who reads this question.  What do you need to do with the SAFEARRAY?  I'll try to give you an exact example.

Dex,

ok, thats fine, I need to pass a byte array in the safe array. I'll be passing the reference of this safe array to another code, where i need to retreive the byte array. So please let me know how to go about using this class...

Thanks

Ram,

Okay, this example will create a SAFEARRAY, copy in a byte array (lpData) that has a size of dwSize:
     CComVector<BYTE>   vec;
     vec.Create( dwSize );
     {
          CComVectorData<BYTE> data( vec );
         
          ::CopyMemory( &(data[0]), lpData, dwSize );
     }
     // Now, you can use "vec" for anything that calls for a SAFEARRAY
     SomeFunc( vec );

What else would you like to see?

Sure, I can help you, but you should open a new question, so that other people can help you too.

If you're done with this question, you should accept an answer.  If you aren't finished, then you should explain what else you need.
