How can I upload base64 data as a file to the database?

Post by adam griffin »

I created a function from the link's code:
code
function uploadBase64(data) {

Code: Select all

 var file = new File(data); 
 uploadPhoto(data); 

 function uploadPhoto(imageURI) { 
     var options = new FileUploadOptions(); 
     options.fileKey = imageURI.substr(imageURI.lastIndexOf('/') + 1); 
     options.fileName = imageURI.substr(imageURI.lastIndexOf('/') + 1); 
     options.mimeType = "image/jpeg&quot 

     var params = { 

         headers: { 
             'X-Appery-Database-Id': "530dasde4e16aaaa4222e7", 
             //'X-Appery-Session-Token': localStorage.getItem('token') 
             'X-Appery-Session-Token':'050b21f5-d74c-4ddf-b785-e1764c8c138a' 
         } 
     }; 

     options.params = params; 

     var ft = new FileTransfer(); 
     ft.upload(imageURI, encodeURI("https://api.appery.io/rest/1/db/files"), win, fail, options); 
 } 

 function win(r) { 
     console.log("Code = " + r.responseCode); 
     console.log("Response = " + r.response); 
     console.log("Sent = " + r.bytesSent); 
 } 

 function fail(error) { 
     alert("An error has occurred: Code = " + error.code); 
     console.log("upload error source " + error.source); 
     console.log("upload error target " + error.target); 
 } 

}
/code
Data is the base64 from another function. When I run the code from the link it says I must use the new operand for :
codevar file = File(data);/code

So I add the "new" operand
codevar file = new File(data);/code
It gives error: "Faile to construct 'File': Illegal constructor"

Hi Adam,

Where do you get this error, in browser? This code is supposed to work on device only (http://docs.phonegap.com/en/3.3.0/cor...). Please specify your device and OS version, and also Appery.io libraries version you use.
