FileHandle.getFile()

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

Summary

The getFile method allows to retrieve a read-only snapshot of the handled file in the form of a File object.

Syntax

var request = instanceOfFileHandle.getFile();

Return

A DOMRequest object. In case of success, the request's result is a File object.
