BitConverter::GetBytes Method (Boolean)

 

Returns the specified Boolean value as a byte array.

Namespace:   System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public:
static array<unsigned char>^ GetBytes(
	bool value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System::Boolean

A Boolean value.

Return Value

Type: array<System::Byte>^

A byte array with length 1.

You can convert a byte array back to a Boolean value by calling the ToBoolean method.

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

using namespace System;

int main()
{
    // Define Boolean true and false values.
    array<bool>^ values = { true, false };

    // Display the value and its corresponding byte array.
    Console::WriteLine("{0,10}{1,16}\n", "Boolean", "Bytes");
    for each (Byte value in values) {
       array<Byte>^ bytes = BitConverter::GetBytes(value); 
       Console::WriteLine("{0,10}{1,16}", value, 
                          BitConverter::ToString(bytes));
    }
}
// This example displays the following output:
//        Boolean           Bytes
//     
//           True              01
//          False              00
