We’re excited to announce a brand new version of our dialog!
<input type=”filepicker” data-fp-apikey=”yourApikey” onchange=”alert(event.fpfile.url)”>[/html]
New responsive design
The fully responsive design looks great on any device. Moreover, it allows the user to fully customize the size of the dialog so that it can fit in anywhere.
Client side image compression
Dialog image compression and resizing works for local files and for desktop/mobile camera photos. The compression and resizing is performed in the browser before the file is sent to the server. This solution can vastly improve the user experience – especially for mobile devices. To enable compression set option
imageQuality in range 0 – 100. To resize image set
imageDim for exact dimensions or
imageMin: [400, 300],
imageMax: [800, 600],
Dimensions are passed as a two element array
[width, height]. The original image ratio is saved. For example the above output will be:
Original dimensions => Output dimensions 1920 × 1200 => 800 x 500 ( downscaling ) 320 x 240 => 400 x 300 ( upscaling ) 640 x 480 => 640 x 480 ( no action, dimensions in range )
Just after picking files the user can crop pictures to the desired size. To include the Crop UI in a widget add the
CONVERT service to the service list. Moreover, you can specify the exact crop area ratio or dimensions with available options
cropRatio, cropDim, cropMin or
services: [‘CONVERT’, ‘COMPUTER’] },
// uploaded file url with appended crop values
In this example the crop area is fixed to 4/3 ratio and can only be resized within this ratio. Demo from the docs
Hide modal while uploading
If you want to handle showing the upload progress by yourself, you can use onProgress callback together with
Display progress for individual files
hide:true the dialog will be hidden immediately after files are selected. The upload will continue in the background and progress callbacks will continue to be fired as the upload happens. Here you can see a demo.
More options and better user experience
- In the new dialog multiple mode, uploading starts immediately when the user selects a file. While files are uploading in the background, users can continue browsing and selecting more content. Background uploading is active by default but can be switched off by
- A user can pick many files from multiple sources in one session. Let’s say you want to upload a few images from your facebook account, some documents from Google Docs and a video from you desktop all at once. With the new dialog it’s a piece of cake.
- Custom css is now a part of the picker options. This way you can set different dialog styles within the same filepicker application. Example:
- In the v2 API the
mobile:true / mobile:falsepicker option has been deprecated as there is only one responsive UI for all devices.
containerparameter in store options is now called
storeContainerin order to differentiate it from the
containerparameter in picker options.
