Properties


resourceName

Value: String
Usage: resourceName = "metadata_block_resourceName";
  • While the resourceName is non-semantic, it is suggested that it should be compatible with JavaScript variable naming conventions and XML/CSS naming conventions to help keep things consistent.
  • This value is used in retrieval of the same-named resource specified in the corresponding metadata block @resource key. After it is retrieved, it will be base64 encoded into the "data" URL scheme, and returned upon completion of this API method.
