Whitebeam Object Definition

Method Description

Binary.fromObj()

Store the contents of a JavaScript object.

Syntax

void = Binary.fromObj(object)

Parameters

The 'Binary.fromObj' method takes 1 parameter:

Name Type/Value Range/Length Description
objectMetaData  Required. Arbitrary JavaScript object to store in the file object.

Results

The 'Binary.fromObj' method returns no useful information.

Remarks

This method is similar to Binary.set() but instead of storing a string in the binary object - it stores an entire object. This builds on the concept of meta data by allowing an arbitrarily complex object to be serialised, stored in a binary object and subsequently recreated. In this case the recreation is implemented by the Binary.toObj() method.

In keeping with the meta-data concept generally the object can be anything represented in JavaScript - from simple string to complex structures and arrays of structures.
