How do you cast a char array to a String?  Here's what I do:

Dim string2 As String
Dim string1 As String = "hello"
Dim charArray() As Char = string1.ToCharArray()
string2 = Cstr(charArray)

I am getting "A first chance exception of type 'System.InvalidCastException' occurred..." error message.

I tried: string2 = New String(charArray)
Same deal.

Please help.
