c# - How to convert string into datetime with mask

DateTime dt;                      
bool b = DateTime.TryParseExact( "December 20, 2021", "MMMM d, yyyy", 
                                 new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US"), 
                                 DateTimeStyles.None, out dt );
if ( b ) Console.WriteLine( dt.Year );
Output:
2021
if you have some problem with conversion, try reversal order at first for checking (=>compare if your string is same as output here):
Console.WriteLine( 
DateTime.Now.ToString( "MMMM d, yyyy", new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US") ) );

C# - How parse double from string with specific char for decimal delimiter

If in your culture is used comma char (",") as decimal delimiter, it could appears problem, when double stored in string is delimited with classic decimal point ("."). 

 In this situation you must specify that decimal point as used delimiter. 

 So, if you have this string value "135.009995"; for right parsing you must define this code:
var currentCulture = System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InstalledUICulture;
var numberFormat = (System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo) currentCulture.NumberFormat.Clone(); 
numberFormat.NumberDecimalSeparator = ".";

double value = 0;
bool b = Double.TryParse ( values[1], System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Any, 
                           numberFormat, out value ); 
if ( b ) el.Open = value;
Now, value contains good double value:

C# - How to convert short array/list into byte array list

/* source with short values */
public List<short> Data = new List<short>();
...
short[] DataArray = Data.ToArray();
byte[] bufferBytes = new byte[ DataArray.Length * sizeof( short ) ];
Buffer.BlockCopy( DataArray, 0, bufferBytes, 0, bufferBytes.Length );
      
/* dest with byte values */      
Console.WriteLine( bufferBytes[0] + ", " + bufferBytes[1] );
If first short value in source list is 313, then first two values in bufferBytes after copy will be 57 (111001) a 1(1).
