Encoder.GetBytes Method (Char*, Int32, Byte*, Int32, Boolean)

This member can be used only by trusted applications. If you try to use this member in a partial-trust application, your code will throw a MethodAccessException exception. This member is security-critical, which restricts its use.
[SECURITY CRITICAL]

When overridden in a derived class, encodes a set of characters starting at the specified character pointer and any characters in the internal buffer into a sequence of bytes that are stored starting at the specified byte pointer. A parameter indicates whether to clear the internal state of the encoder after the conversion.
