    byte array to lpbyte conversion

    May I know if anyone can help me on this issue? I'm trying to use a function in DLL library that requires LPBYTE data type parameters. So, what I can provide is just byte array a.k.a characters. However, I'm having problem converting it to LPBYTE.

    Anyone o ut there having the same problem or have done this before?
    Please give me some tips. thank you.

    An LPBYTE appears to be a 'char *'. Typecast as appropriate, but it looks to just be a pointer to a character. Probably all you need to do is pass your array's name like you normally would.

    LPBYTE is a Long Pointer to a BYTE (Windows terminology) which is effectively a pointer to an unsigned char.
