A String value. BASE64 representation of Blob contents.


  • Basic
The ToBase64(object) syntax has these parts:
object An expression evaluating to an object of type FileBlob


WARNING: you should not use this method with large files, or large amounts of data!

The ToBase64 property will return a BASE64 representation of the data currently contained by the Blob. It is most often used because it is easier to represent binary data this way for transfer by text-only services, such as email.

To get such BASE64 data back into the Blob, you should use the FromBase64 method.
