BE_FileImport ( filePath { ; compressBoolean } )

Imports the contents of the file into a container field or variable, and optionally compresses the field. This provides a similar functionality to the Insert File script step, but the plugin function is also available via FileMaker Server whereas the step doesn't work on server.


- filePath : the path to locate the file.

- compressBoolean : True for compression or empty or False for not.


File Import

Version History:

- 3.0 : First Release

- 4.0.2 : Renamed from BE_ImportFile


- Also note that you can convert container types within a container via the BE_ConvertContainer function, so you can convert the resulting file to an image if required.

Example :

Set Field [ Imports::Image; BE_FileImport ( $file ) ]
