Benoit,
Hi, what is the most performing way to convert a byte stream to a string? By a 'byte stream' do you mean a class derived from System.IO.Strea m?

Use a System.IO.Strea mReader class over the Stream object with the correct
encoding passed to the constructor
Byte() to be converted to String. Or are you referring to a Byte Array?

You can use the System.Text.Enc oding class to convert an array of Bytes to a
String based on the encoding used in the byte array.

Dim bytes() As Byte
Dim s As String = System.Text.Enc oding.Default.G etString(bytes)

Will convert the array of bytes based on the system's current ANSI code
page.
Hope this helps
Jay

Hi, We are having problem in converting a byte array to string, The byte array has char(174), char(175), char(240), char(242) and char(247) as delimiters for the message. when we use "System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetString(bytearray)" of .Net library, we found that the char (delimiters) specified above are replaced with different char.
