I want to convert a bool array (for example {true, true, false} ) to a byte (00000110)
and after converting to integer, it would be 6.

How would I code this in C#? Thanks for answering...

Why go via a byte? You can go straight to uint. Unfortunately C#/.Net doesn't have bit booleans so I am not aware of a better approach than

uint BoolArrayToInt(bool[] bits){
 if(bits.Length > 32) throw new ArgumentException("Can only fit 32 bits in a uint");
 uint r = 0;
 for(int i = 0; i < bits.Length; i++) if(bits[i]) r |= 1 << (bits.Length - i);
 return r;

i want to convert bool array into byte array such that bool[0] comes at byte[7] in c#. Can anyone please help me. Thank you
Take a look at the BitArray class, you can also look at my article which will compress the output integers here : Word Aligned Hybrid (WAH) Compression for BitArrays[^]
