new zip file

Path to the new or existing zip file.

The node deletes and rewrites the file if it already exists. You cannot append data to a zip file.

datatype_icon

confirm overwrite

Boolean value that determines whether the node produces a confirmation dialog before overwriting the existing zip file.

True The node prompts you to confirm deleting the existing zip file.
False The node overwrites the existing zip file without prompting you to confirm.

Default: False

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

reference

The open zip file.

reference is analogous to a refnum or task ID.

datatype_icon

canceled?

Boolean value that indicates whether the user canceled an overwrite confirmation dialog box.

True User canceled an overwrite confirmation dialog box.
False User did not cancel an overwrite confirmation dialog box.
datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
