Detailed documentation

getAs(contentType)

Return the data inside this object as a blob converted to the specified content type. This method adds the appropriate extension to the filename — for example, "myfile.pdf". However, it assumes that the part of the filename that follows the last period (if any) is an existing extension that should be replaced. Consequently, "ChristmasList.12.25.2014" will become "ChristmasList.12.25.pdf".

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
contentTypeStringthe MIME type to convert to. For most blobs, 'application/pdf' is the only valid option. For images in BMP, GIF, JPEG, or PNG format, any of 'image/bmp', 'image/gif', 'image/jpeg', or 'image/png' are also valid.

Return
