Base64ToBin no return value

Hi AB!

My code not working (a couple months ago there was no problem)

function Base64ToBin(const s: RawByteString): RawByteString;
begin
  Base64ToBinSafe(pointer(s), length(s), result);
end;

The result variable is ok inside above code, but when I use this function, the return value is empty string.

  token := Base64ToBin(aToken);

Delphi 11, latest ORM

Thanks, Csaba

Re: Base64ToBin no return value

Because aToken is not a valid Base-64 encoded content, I guess.
There may be some space, line feed or unexpect character within.

BTW: mORMot 1 or 2?

What is the input? Does it decode on https://www.base64decode.org/ for instance?
(please do not post it directly in this forum but on a gist/pastebin link)

Re: Base64ToBin no return value

Hi

I using mormot 2 and before couple of months is no problem.

Base64ToBin conversion is success, but no return value.

Re: Base64ToBin no return value

Seems to in string from RawByteString (string := RawByteString) conversation lost data on function result after quit function.

If I use RawByteString on full call chain, result is back.

What is the best/safe conversation RawByteString to String?

Re: Base64ToBin no return value

It depends on the string code page, once decoded as bin.
Is it UTF-8? Then use Utf8ToString() or Utf8ToStringVar().

On Delphi, you should make all such conversions explicit.
I guess there was a compiler warning in your source code.
Use an explicit conversion function like Utf8ToString() or Utf8ToStringVar().

In your case, your code is pretty wrong.
Don't define token:string; but token:RawByteString;
You are a little bit confused about the Delphi string types - they are somewhat difficult for sure - so consider looking at the documentation about them.

Re: Base64ToBin no return value

Thanks!
You are right, explicit conversation is required. (Perhaps change something in D11). And sorry for take yours time.
Strings are not simple.
