Typed Arrays in Servoy

Is it possible to use typed arrays like Uint8Array when filling out javascript files in servoy?

Hi Habib,

JavaScript is not a strong typed language (unlike TypeScript) but you can do things like:
Code: Select all
/** @type {Array<Integer>} */
var myArray = [];

And developer will give you markers if you use it with anything else than integers.

Hope this helps.

What i want to do is use a Uint8Array/ArrayBuffer to hold data converted from base64 form. Is there any way i can do something like that?

Uint8Array and ArrayBuffer are newer types of arrays that are not available in the javascript version that Servoy uses.
A normal array can hold the data that you want though, but it doesn't prevent you from adding values of different types.
