I've never heard of a "string byte array". You can, however, get the bytes of a string and then place them in a byte array.

Example:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.         byte[] mystringbytearray;
  2.         mystringbytearray = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("gfhg");
  3.

VB:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim Converter As Encoding = Encoding.ASCII
  2. Dim InputString As String = "Hello World"
  3. Dim ByteResult() As Byte = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(InputString)
  4. Dim StringResult As String = Converter.GetString(ByteResult)
  5. Console.WriteLine(StringResult)
C#
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Encoding Converter = Encoding.ASCII;
  2. string InputString = "Hello World";
  3. byte[] ByteResult = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(InputString);
  4. string StringResult = Converter.GetString(ByteResult);
  5. Console.WriteLine(StringResult);

I think perhaps the op wants a "hex string" representation of their string.

For instance if one had:
"A BALL"
You would then have a hex string of:
"41 20 42 41 4C 4C"

This can be achieved by typecasting a byte or a char to an integer and then using the .ToString() overload to print out 2digit hex values

From python manual str( ) Return a string containing a nicely printable representation of an object. For strings, this returns the string itself. The difference with repr(object) is that str(object) does not always attempt to return a string that is acceptable to eval(); its goal is to return a printable string. If no argument is given,...
