The DropZone Object represents a DropZone. A DropZone is an area on disk on the Ortelius Server where deployment artefacts are stored and manipulated before onward transmission to the target Endpoint(s). A DropZone is placed onto the stack during a using DropZone statement – all operations within this block have access to this DropZone via the DropZone Object. A DropZone Object is also present on the stack during pre and post action processing for a Component. In this case, the content of the DropZone are the files checked out from the repository for the associated Component Items.
The following properties can be accessed for a DropZone object:
|path||String||The full path of the location on disk where the DropZone is located. Useful for passing to external scripts that may need to manipulate files in the DropZone.|
|files||Array||An Array of DropZone Object, each one of which represents a file in the DropZone. The array is keyed by the full path name of the file.|
The following methods can be called on the DropZone object:
|find(pattern)||Array||Returns an Array of DropZone Object, each one of which represents a file in the DropZone. The Array is restricted to files whose file name matches the specified pattern. The array is keyed by the full path name of the file.|
|dir()||String||The full path of the location on disk where the DropZone is located. Equivalent to the path attribute.|
