binary data with the VARIANT type ?

Hi , I am having lots of pain dealing with the TCP component
of borland c++ builder .
Can we use binary data transfer ( text + image + control) using
the SendData and GetData function ?
I used the Variant type with the VT_BSTR parameter but it didn't
work then I tried the VT_ARRAY | VT_UI1 but also without any result.
Do you have any solution to this problem ?Thanks in advanceRosario El Feghali
