Config Reference

In the distribution package, you can find the config.json file. This file configures both the multistep editor (not covered in this topic) and the Preflight Tool widget. In this file, you must define such properties as the URL of the server component, preflight rules, and front-end parameters.

Note

You can load this configuration from an external file (as in the provided sample), define it as a variable in JavaScript code, or even read it from your database.

Front-end parameters allow you to set up the workflow and appearance of this tool. Now, let's see how you can configure the preflight widget. The following example represents the params.config object and shows how you can specify a 720 x 576 pt product with 300 dpi, configure the bleed zone, set a preflight rule to check the color space, and enable a button to upload the users' files.

Now, let's see the description of these configuration parameters and their values.

Name Data type Description
language string The language of the user interface, either "en" or "nl". The default value is "en".

multiple boolean If true, this parameter enables multiple selection of files to be uploaded. In this case, the Preflight Tool creates a multipage document, and the page order is the same as their upload order. The number of the uploaded pages cannot exceed the product.pages value. The default value is true.
initialMode "fitToBleed", "fitToTrim", "fillToTrim", "fillToBleed", "default" Defines how the file should be adjusted after it is uploaded. You can fit or fill the file to the product BleedBox and TrimBox. By default, the file is inserted as is.

allowAddPages boolean Allows users to add new pages to the product. The default value is false.
allowDeletePages boolean Allows users to delete pages from the product. The default value is false.
pages number | Page[] | PageLimit Defines either an array of product pages or the number of pages. A Page object contains a title property and allows you to define page titles in the user interface. PageLimit contains the init, min, and max properties and allows you to set the initial number of pages as well as page number limits. The default value is 1. For details, see the Frequently Asked Questions.
dpi number The resolution of the output image. The default value is 300.
bleed number | IMarginLTRB | IMarginHV The bleed zone. This margin extends the resulting image. The default value is 0.
