Binary To Text Conversion in VB.NET

Last day, I had created a tutorial on Text to Binary Conversion. But today, we will have a lecture on how to convert a binary into a text. Here in this tutorial, we will create our own program to create a text to binary conversion. :) So, now let's start this tutorial! 1. Let's start with creating a Windows Form Application for this tutorial by following the following steps in Microsoft Visual Studio: Go to File, click New Project, and choose Windows Application. 2. Next, add two TextBox named TextBox1 to input a binary digit and TextBox2 for displaying the text conversion of the binary you have inputted. Add also a button named Button1. Design your layout like this one below: design 3. Put this code to your Button1_Click. This will display the conversion of the binary to text.
  1. Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
  2. Dim tempString As String = ""
  3. Dim Character As String = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(TextBox1.Text, "[^01]", "")
  4. Dim Bytes((Character.Length / 8) - 1) As Byte
  5. For Index As Integer = 0 To Bytes.Length - 1
  6. Bytes(Index) = Convert.ToByte(Character.Substring(Index * 8, 8), 2)
  7. Next
  8. tempString = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetString(Bytes)
  9. TextBox2.Text = tempString
  10. End Sub


We initialized tempString as String to nothing and a Character as String that holds a regular expression of the textbox1 to 1 or 0 only. Next, we declare a Bytes variable that have the length of 8 bits as we have the code ((Character.Length / 8) - 1). We have a For Next loop that we initialized an Index variable as an integer to start from 0 to the Bytes variable length minus 1 because it is an array of bytes (Note: array starts at 0 so we minus 1 it). Next, the Bytes array index will be equal to the conversion of bytes from the characters inputted in textbox1.The tempString variable will get the equivalent string of the variable Bytes. And then the value of the binary inputted will now be equal to the variable tempString and will be displayed in textbox2.
