Strings returned as Byte[]

Post by AI » Wed 11 May 2011 14:39

Using connector version 6.0.58.0

In some situations, I receive the text back from mysql as Byte[] instead than string, for example with "show processlist" (using mysql 5.0.17-nt - and i am fetching the datas through a MySqlDataReader).

The same "show processlist" under mysql 5.5.11 returns string and not Byte[].

Is it an issue of that mysql server version or am i doing something wrong ?
Thanks!
