Saving Object as System.IO.Stream

Hi,

I am having issues converting my PDF object into a Byte() to print. I have a object called myPDF that has the following method definition:

myPDF.SaveMergedPDFToStream(outPDFStream AS System.IO.Stream)

My print routine has the following definition:

myPrinter.SendBytesToPrinter(Bytes() AS Byte)


I can make it work saving the file to disk and then reading it back in...but that seems pointless.

Thanks,
Brian

You can use Read method of stream to convert stream to byte array

Why not use a MemoryStream? It inherits from the Stream class. You would need to ensure the Position property is set to zero, then simply call the ToArray method to get the bytes within the stream.
