public static byte[] GetBytes(
	bool value
)

A Boolean value.

Return Value

Type: System.Byte[]
An array of bytes with length 1.

The following code example converts the bit patterns of Boolean values to Byte arrays with the GetBytes method.

// Example of the BitConverter.GetBytes( bool ) method. 
using System;

class GetBytesBoolDemo
{
    const string formatter = "{0,10}{1,16}";

    // Convert a bool argument to a byte array and display it. 
    public static void GetBytesBool( bool argument )
    {
        byte[ ] byteArray = BitConverter.GetBytes( argument );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, argument, 
            BitConverter.ToString( byteArray ) );
    }

    public static void Main( )
    {
        Console.WriteLine( 
            "This example of the BitConverter.GetBytes( bool ) " +
            "\nmethod generates the following output.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "bool", "byte array" );
        Console.WriteLine( formatter, "----", "----------" );

        // Convert bool values and display the results.
        GetBytesBool( false );
        GetBytesBool( true );
    }
}
