For converting text to binary and vice versa


I need to convert the TEXT to Binary at the time of saving and from Binary to Text when display to users . I am using different context nodes with elements.

Is it any method to convert both text and binary to the context.

Thanks in advance.

      String to Binary


      convout type ref to cl_abap_conv_out_ce.

      data: lv_string type string,

      lv_binarystring type xstring.

      call method cl_abap_conv_out_ce=>create


      conv = convout.

      call method convout->write


      • N =

      data = lv_string.

      call method convout->get_buffer


      buffer = lv_binarystring.

      Binary to string

      data : lv_binarystring type xstring,

      obj_convin type ref to cl_abap_conv_in_ce,

      lv_string type string.

      call method cl_abap_conv_in_ce=>create


      input = lv_binarystring


      conv = obj_convin.

      clear lv_string.

      call method obj_convin->read


      data = lv_string.
