Joe, if you're familiar with git, submit a pull request to my repo. If not, please submit an issue and I'll have a look. Also please post back here with the LC bug report number.

I had some problems with the use of:
put it into URL ("file:myDownloadedFile.txt")
Your solution works fine, but for future reference, the issue wasn't in the Dropbox extension but rather in the use of "file:" as the URL designator. That only works with text files. If you need to work with binary files, use "binfile" :

"binfile:myDownloadedFile.txt"

I read this post with great excitement, as I have been trying to upload files to Dropbox from an iOS app. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be implemented in the iOS environment. Is there any way to do it?

I am using LC 9.0.1 Build 15103 - do I need to update?
Or do I need to include any library or anything in my iOS build?

Here is my relevant code:

Code: Select all

   put dbToken into pAccessToken
   put "overwrite" into pMode  
   put False into pAutorename  
   put true into pMute 
   
    get hiliteData
    put "Update:" && the seconds into line 1 of it
    replace cr with "###" in it  -- because Dropbox doesn't return any cr's when I download
      
    put "/hiliteData.txt" into pPath	
    put it into pData 
    dropboxUpload pAccessToken, pPath, pMode, pAutorename, pMute, pData 
    
I get an error message "can't find handler".
