  • Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (PTFileSpec *)GetFileSpec;

    Swift

    func getFileSpec() -> PTFileSpec!

    Return Value

    the file specification that contains a file reference or the embedded file data stream.

  • Sets the file specification.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (void)SetFileSpec:(PTFileSpec *)file;

    Swift

    func setFileSpec(_ file: PTFileSpec!)

    Parameters

    file

    The file specification to associate with this annotation.. The file specification contains a file reference or the embedded file data stream.

  • The function saves the data referenced by this File Attachment to an external file.

    If the file is embedded, the function saves the embedded file. If the file is not embedded, the function will copy the external file. If the file is not embedded and the external file can’t be found, the function returns false.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (BOOL)Export:(NSString *)save_as;

    Swift

    func export(_ save_as: String!) -> Bool

    Parameters

    save_as

    An optional parameter indicating the filepath and filename where the data should be saved. If this parameter is not specified the function will attempt to save the file using FileSpec.GetFilePath().

    Return Value

    true is the file was saved successfully, false otherwise.
