Publish Restful returning object as base64string (>65535)

Post by Dino » Thu Apr 29, 2021 10:59 am


I am trying to publish a restful API, using a server module, but I want to return between that information, an object with base64string information.
Starting with the basic example, I would think the idea is to add another property and instead of making it a field, make it an object, then populate the object with something like this...

#STD_QSEL := 'c:\temp\DIYStand.pdf'
#File.FromFile Path(#STD_QSEL)
#File.FromBase64String String(#File.AsBase64String)

but when trying to add a property, Type Object, it keeps telling me that it need an Schema property...

Has anyone done that yet? Any ideas how to approach it?

thank you

Hi Dino, did you uh, add a schema property like it suggests?

An object is a JSON object, a collection of String, Number, Array properties lumped together. It is not an object until it has at least one property.

A base64 string encoded file would be a string type property in your object.
