How to convert text to binary then save in DB?
Question

Hi all, 

I would like to ask how to convert text(string) to binary then save in DB. Since there is a input for user to enter a lot of wording (around 8000 ~ 9000 words), thus there is people suggest me to convert text to binary before save in DB.  

Please suggest how I can do this, Thanks

Hi Jack,

There's an Action (TextToBinaryData) that should serve you in the BinaryData extension:

Whenever you need to display the value again, you can reverse it with BInaryDataToText.

Also, make sure that you store this in a seperate Entity, to avoid slow downs on querying.
