See more: VB VB.NET socket udp
Hi
 
VB 2010 express question on socket data
 
I am trying to send and recieve data over ethernet on UDP, I have had some success but there is   a data access niggly I just can't seem to get past and a variable definition I just don't understand.
 
1. What I don't understand
 
      Dim BytesReceived As [Byte]()
 
What is this [byte]() type????? I have never seen this kind of constructor before, I am using it blindly!
 
2. Using the following to receive a string from the socket via UDP:-
 
      Dim udpClientEvents As New Net.Sockets.UdpClient(54124)
      Dim IPEndPoint As System.Net.IPEndPoint
      Dim BytesReceived As [Byte]()
 
      BytesReceived = udpClientEvents.Receive(IPEndPoint)
      Form1.TextBox2.Text = BytesReceived.Length
 
When I debug I can see the data in the BytesReceived array and I can get the length, but how do I get my hands on the data within it????? maybe display it into a textbox to start, like the length.
 
Many thanks in advance for any help   Smile | :)

Solution 1

[Byte]() : Array of byte
 
like
 
dim x() as string 'Array of string
or
dim x as string() '
