convert integer to hex, get the endianness right and pad the numbers out

P: 2
I am trying to write to some memory and I am having some trouble because of the endianness of the memory and it being written in Hex. for the first three bytes, if I want to write to them I need to include the string "0000" "0100" "0200" in my command string. I'd just like to be able to have some code like

for dim counter as integer = 0 to 255

*** convert counter to hex *****



any help would be great!

solved my own problem:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim Num As Int16 = 1
  2.         Dim array As Byte() = BitConverter.GetBytes(Num)
  3.         Dim output As String = BitConverter.ToString(array, 0)
  4.         Dim outputarray() As String = Split(output, "-")
  5.         output = outputarray(0) & outputarray(1)
output then contains what I want!
