C# Question

Convert string to hex-string in C#

I have a string like "sample". I want to get a string of it in hex format; like this:

"796173767265"


Please give the C# syntax.

Answer

First you'll need to get it into a byte[], so do this:

byte[] ba = Encoding.Default.GetBytes("sample");

and then you can get the string:

var hexString = BitConverter.ToString(ba);

now, that's going to return a string with dashes (-) in it so you can then simply use this:

hexString = hexString.Replace("-", "");

to get rid of those if you want.

NOTE: you could use a different Encoding if you needed to.
