    Hi all,
    my problem is to write to a wifi socket connected to a led display.
    The Display accepts a 22 byte string, but some of the required chars are chr(177) to chr(186).
    When I assign the string to buffer the buffer of course gets negative values.. and the display will not generate any output.
    Any suggestion?
    Sub writeTotemString(ps_message As String)
    Dim buffer() As Byte = ps_message.GetBytes("UTF8")
    End Sub
    Buffer(3) : -62 (0xFFFFFFC2)

    Sorry, disregard... it works even with the negative numbers... I just changed the charset to ISO-8859-1..
