From base16, b16, hex (from16)
Creates a byte array from a valid hexadecimal (base16) string. For more information about byte arrays, see the Make byte array (mkboxar) operation.
How does it work in the search window?
Select Create column in the search window toolbar, then select the From base16, b16, hex operation. You need to specify one argument:
|Base16 string (mandatory)||string|
The data type of the values in the new column is boxar(int1).
This example is performed in a data table generated from this lookup file.
You must download the file and upload it as a lookup (name the lookup table values). Then, you can access it from the Finder, selecting my → lookuplist → conversion. Learn more in Upload a lookup table.
When you upload the lookup file, you must change the format of the hexStr column to Alphanumerical value.
my.lookuplist.conversion table, we want to transform the hexadecimal strings in the Hexadecimal strings column into byte arrays. To do it, we will create a new column using the From base16, b16, hex operation.
The arguments needed to create the new column are:
- Base16 string - hexStr column
Click Create column and you will see the following result:
How does it work in LINQ?
Use the operator
as... and add the operation syntax to create the new column. This is the syntax for the From base16, b16, hex operation:
You can copy the following LINQ script and try the above example on the
my.lookuplist.conversion table. As said above, keep in mind that you must download and upload this lookup file to your Devo domain.
from my.lookuplist.conversion select from16(hexStr) as hexArray
