Converts the specified string, which encodes binary data as base-64 digits, to an equivalent 8-bit unsigned integer array.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
inString is nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
The length of inString, ignoring white-space characters, is not zero or a multiple of 4.
The format of inString is invalid. inString contains a non-base-64 character, more than two padding characters, or a non-white space-character among the padding characters.
inString is composed of base-64 digits, white-space characters, and trailing padding characters. The base-64 digits in ascending order from zero are the uppercase characters "A" to "Z", lowercase characters "a" to "z", numerals "0" to "9", and the symbols "+" and "/".
The white-space characters, and their Unicode names and hexadecimal code points, are tab (CHARACTER TABULATION, U+0009), newline (LINE FEED, U+000A), carriage return (CARRIAGE RETURN, U+000D), and blank (SPACE, U+0020). An arbitrary number of white-space characters can appear in inString because all white-space characters are ignored.
The valueless character, "=", is used for trailing padding. The end of inString can consist of zero, one, or two padding characters.
