A set of libraries to enable file handling with WebVIs. Files in a web browser behave a bit differently than on desktop. In a web browser the user must explicitly select files to be read by the WebVI and the WebVI can trigger files to be downloaded by the web browser. See a demo of the different capabilities.
- Read user-selected binary / text files
- Download binary / text files
- Read pictures from a webcam or from a file
- Base64 Encoding and Decoding VIs
Make sure to include all the Library gcomp's in your application and place them on the Web Server target. The FileTasks.gcomp contains some high-level tasks to handle common operations such as reading a text file as a string, reading a binary file as a byte array, etc.
