How to convert image to binary and get result in text box

How to convert image to binary and get result in text box

I need to convert image to binary and get result in text box .

Image found in path D:/person.jpg

i using the following function :

CODE --> c#

public bool[] imageToBinaryArray(System.Drawing.Image imageIn)
MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
bool[] arr = new bool[50000000];
int i =0;
imageIn.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);
BitArray bitarray = new BitArray(ms.ToArray());
foreach (bool item in bitarray)
arr[i] = item;
return arr;
How to receive the value returned from function imageToBinaryArray in textbox1 as binary string 0 and 1 ?

RE: How to convert image to binary and get result in text box

I've never had a need to do anythng like that, so this is just a suggestion.

Declare a StringBuilder and Append each arr[i].ToString then set the Text property of the TextBox to the StringBuilder.ToString.

If I had your requiremments, that is the first method that I would try!

A better solution is here:
