public override long GetBytes(
	int ordinal,
	long dataIndex,
	byte[] buffer,
	int bufferIndex,
	int length
)

Parameters

ordinal

The zero-based column ordinal.

dataIndex
Type: System.Int64

The index within the field from which to start the read operation.

buffer
Type: System.Byte[]

The buffer into which to read the stream of bytes.

bufferIndex
Type: System.Int32

The index within the buffer where the write operation is to start.

length
Type: System.Int32

The maximum length to copy into the buffer.

Return Value

Type: System.Int64
The number of bytes read.

Implements

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

If you call GetBytes with a non-null buffer, the data is read into the buffer, and GetBytes will return the number of bytes that were read into the buffer.

If you call GetBytes with a null buffer, then no data is read, and GetBytes will return the number of bytes that are available to read.

No conversions are performed; therefore, the data retrieved must already be a byte array.
