[SOLVED] [1.7.2] Sending BufferedImage and String in one network message.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, i need to sent packet from client to server which contains string and a buffer image, but i dont know how to write string and bufferedimage into ByteBuf at one time. I am using network system from coolAlisa github tutorial.

Code, with which i am sending packet



BufferedImage screen = ImageIO.read(getLastScreenShoot());

PacketDispatcher.sendToServer(new SendReportMessage(field.getText().replaceAll("\\p{Cntrl}", "").trim(), screen));


Packet class code


public class SendReportMessage implements IMessage{

private String report;
private BufferedImage screen;

public SendReportMessage(){}

public SendReportMessage(String msg, BufferedImage img)
	this.report = msg;
	this.screen = img;

public void fromBytes(ByteBuf buf) {
	this.report = new String(buf.array());
                //How to get image from buf?

public void toBytes(ByteBuf buf) {
	byte[] b = report.getBytes();
                //How to write this.screen into buf?

public static class Handler extends AbstractServerMessageHandler<SendReportMessage>

	public IMessage handleServerMessage(EntityPlayer player, SendReportMessage message, MessageContext ctx) {
		//Working with packet
		return null;
