Need loop to copy chunks from byte array
I have to process a large byte array that is passed to my function. I need to copy the content from this incoming byte array in smaller "chunks" to an outbound byte array.
For every "chunk" of data I need to call a web service.
Upon return, I need to resume looping through the incoming byte array, continuing to pass a whole or partial chunk of data until the complete byte array is processed (i.e. sent to the web service in chunks).
I am very new to C# and I am struggling with a loop that works. I know how to call the web service to handle a "chunk" but I can't get the looping correct. Here is a sketch of the pathetic mess I currently have:
Could one of you experts take this idea and show me the proper way to loop? Thanks very much in advance.
int chunkSize = 10000;
byte outboundBuffer = new byte[chunkSize];
while (BytesRead > 0)
long i = 0;
foreach (byte x in incomingArray)
BytesRead += 1;
outboundBuffer[i] = incomingArray[i]
uploadObject.Size = BytesRead;
uploadObject.MTOMPayload = outboundBuffer;
// call web service here and pass the uploadObject
// get next "chunk" until incomingArray is fully processed
