Casts a specified input (x) to the specified data type, (type), by flattening it and unflattening it using the new data type.

If the node must reinterpret data instead of transforming it, LabVIEW uses a temporary buffer.

Note  

If you use this node to convert between a string and a byte array, the result might change in future versions of this product.
