bytes
Type: System.Byte()

The length of bytes is greater than MaxValue.

The first byte in the array represents bits 0 through 7, the second byte represents bits 8 through 15, and so on. The Least Significant Bit of each byte represents the lowest index value: " bytes [0] & 1" represents bit 0, " bytes [0] & 2" represents bit 1, " bytes [0] & 4" represents bit 2, and so on.

This constructor is an O(n) operation, where n is the number of elements in bytes.
