Hi,

I have created a PDF document using a third party component and I can get the results as a Byte Array. I now need to add this to a xml document to be returned from a webservice. How do I go about this? I have looked at serialization but can't get my head around it!

Is my best method to save the PDF to a file and then read it into the XML of is there another method?

Either way, how is it done?

Thanks,

Smert

well if you have it in a byte array ...

just to get Document ...

public function GetDocument(byval name as string) as byte ()
      return InternalGetDocument(name)
end function

that can be used as a webmethod to return the document without issue ...

If you would rather read it as if it were a stream you can use ...

Dim ms as MempryStream = new MemoryStream(InternalGetDocument(name))

then you can access it with a streamreader etc ...
