StreamWriter.Write: Not possible to write byte array? Only Char array?


I need to write an array to a file with StreamWriter. I am now using a Char Array as StreamWriter.write does only support char arrays, not byte arrays...

Now how can I flush the char array when I dont need it anymore?

im not quite sure what you are asking... you want to clear the char array? in VB you could do chararray = nothing

you can convert binary data to a base64 string and write it as a string if that helps..


and then use convert.FromBase64String to turn it back into a byte array froma string when you read it back.
