DM4 Images throws if file has no media type

Component: 3rd Party Plugins Version:
Keywords: Cc: dgf, Malte, JuergeN
Complexity: 3 Area:


When clicking a File topic whose Media Type is not set (= unknown, e.g. for .md files) the DM4 Images throws a client-side error:

TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating 'topic.childs["dm4.files.media_type"].value')

As a consequence the File topic's context menu is not available.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

The following commit fixes this issue and as a result the context menu of the dm4-webclient should appear normally again - also for files with an "unknown" Media Type.


Thanks for trying the new version and reporting this issue.

Thanks for fixing!

Just a tiny hint: instead of

if (topic.childs.hasOwnProperty("dm4.files.media_type")) {
    if (topic.childs["dm4.files.media_type"].value === "image/jpeg" ||
        topic.childs["dm4.files.media_type"].value === "image/png") {

you might write:

var media_type = topic.childs["dm4.files.media_type"]
if (media_type) {
    if (media_type.value == "image/jpeg" ||
        media_type.value == "image/png") {

This is better to read and reduces property lookups.

You might also want respect all image types by just testing the primary media type ("image/").

Thanks for your comment, i applied your suggestion.

Regarding support for all image types (see here a list of possibilities) - to not include others (specifically those i could not test) was my deliberate decision. Do you have any specific formats you use or generally in mind i should test this resize operation with?

The implementation around the Java2D wrapper i use here (at least according to its docs) currently produces "good results" only with JPEGs and PNGs. For more details on it see also for example the Working with GIFs section here.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

OK, thanks for the info!
I'm fine with PNG and JPEG.
