I am trying to send data via TCP.
Some data as to be sent in HEX format while some data doesn't.
Here is an example string whats in brackets should be in HEX:
[\x00\x81]SV.97000000009[\x1C]123456

Please advise how to send this data properly.

Here is the code:
postData = "\x00\x81SV.97000000009\x1C123456";

                var server = "localhost";
                var port = 5100;

                TcpClient client = new TcpClient(server, port);

                byte[] bytes = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(postData);
                
                NetworkStream stream = client.GetStream();
                stream.Write(bytes, 0, bytes.Length);

                bytes = new Byte[256];
                String responseData = String.Empty;

                Int32 data = stream.Read(bytes, 0, bytes.Length);
                responseData = Encoding.ASCII.GetString(bytes, 0, data);

                var result = responseData;
                stream.Close();
                client.Close();

Try it like this:
postData = "\\x00\\x81SV.97000000009\\x1C123456";

Or like this
postData = @"\x00\x81SV.97000000009\x1C123456";

ASCII characters are limited to the lowest 128 Unicode characters, from U+0000 to U+007F.

So your 0x81 byte is not an ASCII character.

Although I made a pertinent point regarding the definition of ASCII, Fernando Soto provided a practical answer to how to do what the questioner asked.

So perhaps the points should be split?

angelIII That should have been to split the points with DansDadUK not all to me. Thanks
