Reads data from a blob into a new string


Device + Agent


Name Type Description
numberOfBytes Integer The number of bytes to read


String — the blob-sourced bytes as a string


This method reads the specified number of bytes from the blob and returns them as a new string.

The new string’s bytes are taken from the current read/write pointer onwards. The pointer can be determined using the tell() method and set using the seek() method.

Only those bytes up to the end the source blob are read; if the call asks for 256 bytes but the read/write pointer is 128 bytes from the end, the new string will be 128 characters long.
