Is there an equivalent to the StringBuilder class for writing values which are automatically converted to a byte array and then added to an internal byte array?
Example:

ByteBuilder bb = new ByteBuilder();
bb.Write(1.0f);
bb.Write(false);
bb.Write(3.1);
return bb.AllBytes();

Note: This class ByteBuilder, I'm searching for an equivalent IN the .net Framework.

Hi,

you could certainly make one but i've never seen something like you've outlined in the .NET framework - hopefully one exists though and its just obscure.

Best of luck

might have accepted too quickly .. would a MemoryStream and a BinaryWriter not do just this? :)

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io.binarywriter.aspx

MemoryStream m = new MemoryStream();
BinaryWriter writer = new BinaryWriter(m);
writer.write(true);
writer.write("hello");
writer.write(12345);
writer.Flush();
return m.ToArray();
