I have a byte array that holds 100 values, i search through and find 20 values that i copy to a new array, then i need to delete the values from the original array and resize it.
Here is what i have so far.

'byte array to hold the chunk
                Dim bytChunk As Byte()
                'make it the needed size
                ReDim bytChunk(shrtTailIndex - shrtHeadIndex)
                'copy the bytes from the ring buffer to the chunkbuffer
                Array.Copy(bytRingBuffer, shrtHeadIndex, bytChunk, 0, bytRingBuffer.Length)


What i need to know is how to delete the array of values and then resize it so there is no blank space inside if that would be the case

VB.NET VS2005

Thanks!!

Add these lines:

Array.Copy(bytRingBuffer, shrtTailIndex + 1, bytRingBuffer, shrtHeadIndex, bytRingBuffer.Length - (shrtTailIndex + 1))
Redim Preserve byt((bytRingBuffer.Length - 1) - (shrtTailIndex - shrtHeadIndex + 1))

I tested this using { 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 } with shrtHeadIndex = 3 and shrtTailIndex = 6 and got { 0, 1, 2, 7, 8, 9 }
