How to get the size of the blob file uploaded ?

Hi ,

Is there anyway to get the size of the file i have uploaded to a blob type attribute ?

What i can see is that when we upload a file in contributor UI ,once the file is uploaded successfully and if we hover on it , it will show the filename , type and size of the uploaded file .

From where can we get that details so that we can reuse these details in our code ?



Thanks and Regards,

    I dont think there are any default option for geeting the file size. you have to write Filter class

    A filter is a sensible solution, or you can get it in a roundabout way like this for example if you have the blobid (this is paraphrased from OpenMarket/Gator/AttributeTypes/IMAGEPICKERShowImages.jsp):


    <ics:sql sql='<%="select urldata,filevalue from MungoBlobs where id=" + ics.GetVar("blobid")%>' listname="blobdata" table="MungoBlobs" />

    <ics:listget listname="blobdata" fieldname="urldata" output="urldata" />

    <ics:setvar name="blobpath" value='<%=ics.GetProperty("cc.urlattrpath", "gator.ini", true) + ics.GetVar("urldata")%>' />


    File blobFile = new File(ics.GetVar("blobpath"));

    long length = blobFile.length();
