Property Value

Type: String

The conversion mode of this converter.

Default value is "".


This property specifies a format string for a desired conversion mode. It consists of masks=mode pairs separated by semicolon. Each pair includes a set of file masks separated by comma and a corresponding mode. In general, this string has the following syntax:


When ActiveX/Java Uploader prepares the upload request, it parses the conversion mode format string from the beginning to the end and extracts such pairs. For each file selected for upload ActiveX/Java Uploader gives the first pair. If it finds a file mask in this pair which matches the file extension, it applies a corresponding mode. If no appropriate file mask found, ActiveX/Java Uploader checks the next pairs in the same way.


If there is no file mask corresponding to the original file extension or appropriate mode ActiveX/Java Uploader does not send this converted file.

This is a list of supported conversion modes:

SourceFilemeans that the selected file will be uploaded from a user's computer without any changes.
Thumbnailworks as follows. If the selected file is image, it will be resized using the parameters listed below and uploaded as JPEG file. Otherwise, a converted file will not be sent.
Iconmeans that a system icon associated with the selected file will be uploaded.
Zipmeans that a ZIP archive of the selected file will be uploaded.
