To convert an object to a byte array:

// Convert an object to a byte array
public static byte[] ObjectToByteArray(Object obj)
{
    BinaryFormatter bf = new BinaryFormatter();
    using (var ms = new MemoryStream())
    {
        bf.Serialize(ms, obj);
        return ms.ToArray();
    }
}

You just need copy this function to your code and send to it the object that you need to convert to a byte array. If you need convert the byte array to an object again you can use the function below:

// Convert a byte array to an Object
public static Object ByteArrayToObject(byte[] arrBytes)
{
    using (var memStream = new MemoryStream())
    {
        var binForm = new BinaryFormatter();
        memStream.Write(arrBytes, 0, arrBytes.Length);
        memStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);
        var obj = binForm.Deserialize(memStream);
        return obj;
    }
}

You can use these functions with custom classes. You just need add the [Serializable] attribute in your class to enable serialization
