[SOLVED] StringToBinary, Hex, and 0x

Recommended Posts

caleb41610

I'm pretty new to this, but StringToBinary looks like hex codes when returned? After googling, it's the same values as hex would return too.

Could someone briefly explain:

how to return actual binary ex. 1's 0's

what the 0x means infront of the "hex"

To get a string of 1s and 0s you'd need to convert the information yourself, there's no built-in function to do it, although there are plenty of examples here in the forum.

The 0x in front of the number is to indicate that the string is a hex number and should be treated that way, otherwise it's just a string of numbers and/or letters.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Here's a conversion routine that I came up with that will display the different formats that the number can be displayed in. It includes a function to convert an integer to a string of 1s and 0s in binary.

$Value = 454823
$HexValue = Hex($Value)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $HexValue = ' & $HexValue & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
$BinaryValue = Binary($Value)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $BinaryValue = ' & $BinaryValue & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
$RealBinaryValue = _BinaryValue($Value)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $RealBinaryValue = ' & $RealBinaryValue & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console
Func _BinaryValue($inValue)
     Local $OutValue = "", $sOutValue = ""
     ; find the bits that make up the incoming number
     While $inValue > 1
         $sOutValue &= Int(Mod($inValue, 2))
         $inValue = $inValue / 2
     WEnd
     ; reverses the string so it will display correctly
     For $I = StringLen($sOutValue) To 1 Step -1
         $OutValue &= StringMid($sOutValue, $I, 1)
     Next
     Return $OutValue
EndFunc ;==>_BinaryValue
