SqlDataRecord.GetBytes Method

Gets the value for the column specified by the ordinal as an array of Byte objects.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Server
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)
public long GetBytes(
	int ordinal,
	long fieldOffset,
	byte[] buffer,
	int bufferOffset,
	int length
)

Parameters

ordinal
Type: System.Int32

The zero-based ordinal of the column.

fieldOffset
Type: System.Int64

The offset into the field value to start retrieving bytes.

buffer
Type: System.Byte[]

The target buffer to which to copy bytes.

bufferOffset
Type: System.Int32

The offset into the buffer to which to start copying bytes.

length
Type: System.Int32

The number of bytes to copy to the buffer.

Return Value

Type: System.Int64
The number of bytes copied.

Implements

IDataRecord.GetBytes(Int32, Int64, Byte[], Int32, Int32)
ExceptionCondition
IndexOutOfRangeException

The ordinal is less than 0 or greater than the number of columns (that is, FieldCount).

SqlNullValueException

The column specified by ordinal is null.

InvalidCastException

There is a type mismatch.

This method enables you to obtain a binary value either in a single call or in chunks. Getting the value in chunks is useful for large values or values of unknown size.

To obtain the value in several chunks, allocate a byte array of the chunk-size and call GetBytes repeatedly, adjusting the fieldOffset parameter accordingly in each call.
