I want to pass a
byte to a method takes a
IntPtr Parameter in C#, is that possible and how?
Not sure about getting an IntPtr to an array, but you can copy the data for use with unmanaged code by using Mashal.Copy:
IntPtr unmanagedPointer = Marshal.AllocHGlobal(bytes.Length); Marshal.Copy(bytes, 0, unmanagedPointer, bytes.Length); // Call unmanaged code Marshal.FreeHGlobal(unmanagedPointer);
Alternatively you could declare a struct with one property and then use Marshal.PtrToStructure, but that would still require allocating unmanaged memory.
Edit: Also, as Tyalis pointed out, you can also use fixed if unsafe code is an option for you
GCHandle pinnedArray = GCHandle.Alloc(byteArray, GCHandleType.Pinned); IntPtr pointer = pinnedArray.AddrOfPinnedObject(); // Do your stuff... pinnedArray.Free();
