<%@codepage=1220%>
and the charset for the asp file will be set to charset=utf-16.

Hi,

Thanks for replying.... but the method you suggested would theoretically convert all the data on the page to utf-16,
which is not exactly what i wanted... but somehow... asp doesn't do that...

Anyway, leaving other details apart......

What i needed was... i wanted to convert my text (utf-8) to utf-16... and just wanted to inform you that
I was actually able to find an algorithm which
takes an input string and converts to utf-8 or utf-16, depending on what you want.

Thanks anyway for trying to help.
cheers.

Regarding the points...

Because I found the answer else where  but at the same time you tried to help me...
I would offer some of the points to you (maybe about 50)... but not sure whether can decrease the points...

However, i have yet another question... and would offer you the total points if you could give me the solution to that question.

Dim mytext() As Char = "This is a test"
Dim c As Char, s,bs As String, i as Integer

' string to binary

For Each c In mytext
     s += Integer.Parse(Convert.ToString(Asc(c), 2)).ToString("00000000")
Next

MessageBox.Show("Converted to binary: " & s)

' binary to string

For i = 0 To s1.Length - 1 Step 8
      bs += Chr((Convert.ToByte(s.Substring(i, 8), 2)))
Next
MessageBox.Show("Converted back to String: " & bs)

The code you provided looks like an asp.net code....
what I'm looking for is asp code, not asp.net

I need to convert a string to byte array in asp.

thanks.

Hi

I have tried the code you gave me.....
it's a .NET code... what i was looking for is an asp code (not .net)

Your code works for .NET... maybe I could use this later for some other project.

However, I've found a way to do the conversion in asp..... I've decided to use an asp component which does that.

Regarding the points, because you tried to help me, and came up with something i could use later... and because I'm a pretty good mood today... I've changed my mind and decided to award all the points to you.

cheers,
