Copying a binary buffer to a TIdBytes object

I am using Indy10 with C++ builder XE2 and I want to send a packet of binary data using a UDPServer control. I have a plain buffer of data to send in an array of unsigned chars.
Can someone explain how to move data from a plain character array to a TIdBytes object

The code is as follows :

unsigned char buff[566];
TIdBytes ABuffer;

SetupBuffer(buff) // data is prepared for sending (566 bytes)

// .....  some code needed to move the buffer into the TIdBytes buffer ??

// now send the data using UDP to a remote host listening on port 10036

IdUDPServer1->SendBuffer(remotehost,10036,ABuffer);

Thanks,

Roger

That could be

unsigned char buff[566];
TIdBytes ABuffer;

ABuffer.Length = 256;

for (int i = 0; i < 256; ++i)
  ABuffer[i] = buff[i];

Open in new window


But IMHO it might be easier to pass ABuffer to 'SetupBuffer()' instead.

I have found the answer:

ABuffer.set_length(sizeof(buff));
ABuffer =  RawToBytes(buff, sizeof(buff));
