Encode & Decode Actions

Decode Base64 encoded data to a byte array.

Property

Value

Description

data*

expression, variable

data to decode

returnVariable

expression, variable

name of the variable to be assigned to the return value

Example

userXML = loadFileAsXML("users/user.dsml")
photoBytes = decodeBase64ToBytes(userXML.photo[0]);
saveToFile("user.jpg", photoBytes)

Decode Base64 encoded data to a string.
