File types

List of available File types in the system
When uploading file documents to yeager, the system can try to autodetect the File type. This is recommended to eliminate the need of manually specifying a File type for each and every uploaded document.

To enable auto-detection, leave the filetype dropdown on its default setting ("Automatic").
For every File type, a custom File processor can be configured. Processing is executed every time a document with the respective type is uploaded or changed. For more information on File processors see Developer Guide: Developing Processors.

List of all Views in the system
If width or height is set to "fluid, maximum" and a specific value the File will only be scaled or cropped if it exceeds the specified dimensions (for each dimension respectively). The "fixed"-option always forces scaling or cropping to the specified dimensions.

The cropping options define how the File will be cropped if cropping is needed. Horizontal cropping changes the File width, whereas vertical cropping changes the File height.

  • left/right: cropping with alignment from the left or right
  • top/bottom: cropping with alignment from the top or bottom
  • center/middle: cropping with central alignment
Views can be assigned to individual Files or whole File folders. If a View is assigned to a folder, all existing and new Files in that folder will be assigned with that View. Depending on the File type configuration, a File processor may be in place. In regard to image documents, each View represents a cropped or scaled version of the source image.
