Hi guys,

I want to retrieve array of bytes data from database and receive it in byte array like this:

Dim _MemoryStream As New System.IO.MemoryStream()
Dim _BinaryFormatter As New System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary.BinaryFormatter()
_BinaryFormatter.Serialize(_MemoryStream, ourCommand.ExecuteScalar())

UserPasswordKey = _MemoryStream.ToArray()

but it give me error for this line of code:

_BinaryFormatter.Serialize(_MemoryStream, ourCommand.ExecuteScalar())

I try at first to do like that:

Dim UserPasswordKey As Byte() = ourCommand.ExecuteScalar()

but i must convert ExecuteScalar from object to byte() firstly

If it IS a byte array, cast it. If it's not, what is it ? An object is not anything.
