File Input

Multi File Input

Prompt the user to upload a number of files (1-10) of one or more specific mime (file) types.

What the chat user will see:

  • Headline text (description)

  • Disclaimer text (disclaimer)

  • Browse file button text (upload button text)

  • Submit file button text (submit button text)

In the scenario editor you will be able to set the settings above, as well as:

  • A range of files to allow the user to upload (with a maximum of 10).

  • Which mime (file) types that the users are allowed to upload using that multi file input card.

    • If the mime type you would like to allow for upload is not present in the dropdown menu, you can add it manually in the code editor.

  • Name of the variable (in the data object) where the file information is saved.

Data object

The file objects stored in the data object will in this example look like the example below.

The individual file objects contain:

  • 'label' (file name)

  • 'mimetype'

  • 'size' (in Bytes)

  • 'url' (to the file)

The files are stored in an array in uploaded_files (the variable name you set in the card settings) -> files -> array.

'db': {
    'uploaded_files': {
        'files': [{
            'label': '1615980339237_1615890209161_name_of_first_file_1615980339237_1615890209161.pdf',
            'mimetype': 'application/pdf',
            'size': 13831,
            'url': 'https: //'
        }, {
            'label': '1615980339237_1615890209161_name_of_second_file_1615890209232_1615980339327.png',
            'mimetype': 'image/png',
            'size': 9473,
            'url': 'https: //'

In order to use the files you need to create a custom component and parse the data above from the data object.
