file_picker 4.1.6 file_picker: ^4.1.6 copied to clipboard
A package that allows you to use a native file explorer to pick single or multiple absolute file paths, with extension filtering support.
Fixes the issue that users could not pick
.app files on macOS because FilePicker tried to determine the file size of
.app files. On macOS, these special kind of files are actually Unix directories in a special format (read more on StackExchange). Now, if a file is picked, which is actually a directory, then the file size will be zero. (#856)
- Fixes an issue that would prevent the call to return when both
allowMultiplewere set. (#843).
- Addresses an issue in the example app.
Addresses an issue where multiple media files couldn't be picked in some 3rd party explorers (#846). Thank you @innim98.
Fixes an issue where Live Photos were being picked as
.pvt packages (since iOS 15). From now on, if
allowCompression is set to
true, Live Photos will automatically be converted to static JPEG pictures. (#835)
Fixes the issue that on Linux the file type filter
FileType.any did not allow the selection of files without file extension. (#836)
Extends API by new function
saveFiles() for opening a save-file dialog as requested in #799. This feature is only supported on desktop platforms (Linux, macOS, and Windows).
Fixes custom extension filter. Thank you @jgoyvaerts.
Overrides equality and toString for
file_picker_result for better comparison different results. Thank you @Nolence.
- Changes the presentation type of the picker from
- Fixes regression of #746.
- Updates exception text when trying to access
pathon Web. Thank you @maxzod.
From now on, you'll be able to use file_picker with all your platforms, a big thanks to @philenius, which made this possible and allowed the flutter_file_picker_desktop to be merged with this one.
Have in mind that because of platforms differences, that the following API methods aren't available to use on Desktop:
onFileLoading()isn't necessary, hence,
FilePickerStatuswon't change, since it hasn't any effect on those;
clearTemporaryFiles()isn't necessary since those files aren't created — the platforms will always use a reference to the original file;
- There is a new optional parameter
dialogTitlewhich can be used to set the title of the modal dialog when picking the files;
onFileLoading() to Web. (#766).
- Addresses an issue where an invalid custom file extension wouldn't throw an error when it should. Thank you @Jahn08.
getDirectoryPath()#745. Thank you @tomm1e.
- Removes analysis_options.yaml from the plugin and fixes the Don't import implementation files from another package warning (#746).
- Addresses an issue where bytes might be missing after first picking when
withDatais set to
- Patches README import path. (Thank you @voynichteru)
sizeproperties are now non-nullable types.
- Updates README;
- Updates API docs;
- Updates Android example app to V2;
- Removes deprecated call warnings;
- Adds analysis_options.yaml with linter rule to surpress warnings from generated_plugin_registrant.
- Use MediaStore Opener (which goes through the gallery) instead of default explorer. (Thank you @tmthecoder).

- Updates example app to null safety.
- Addresses an issue on iOS 14 and later where events
onFileLoadingevents weren't being provided (#577).
- Web: Updates
PlatformFileto be in bytes instead of kb;
- Applies minor refactor to example app. Thank you @Abhishek01039;
iOS & Android: Updates
size property from
PlatformFile to be in bytes instead of kb.
iOS: Fixes iOS ViewController which is nil when UIWindow.rootViewController have changed. (#525). Thank you @devcxm.
withReadStream that allows bigger files to be streamed read into a
Stream<List<int>>. Thanks @redsolver.
extension helper getter to use the
name property instead of
path, since the latest isn't available on the Web, hence, the extension wouldn't be as well. Thank you @markgrancapal.
FileType.audio exports to support ipod-library content (non DRM protected). From now on, a cached asset (m4a) will be exported from the selected music file in the Music app, so it can later be used. Fixes (#441).
Minor fix on CHANGELOG regarding version
- iOS: Updates media picker to launch in app context (instead of modal).
- Minor update to README file.
Fixes an issue on iOS 14, where canceling with swipe gestures, could result in cancel event not being dispatched. (#431).

Fixes README screenshots.
iOS: Updates picker to use new PHPickerController for both single and multi media (image/video) picks (iOS 14 and above only).
- Unifies all platforms (IO, Web and Desktop) in a single plugin (file_picker) that can be used seamlessly across all. Both file_picker_interface and file_picker_web are no longer mantained from now on.
- You'll now have to use
FilePicker.platform.pickFiles()and extract the files from
- Because platforms are unified and mixing
Fileinstances from dart:io and dart:html required stubbing and bloated code, it's no longer available as helper method so you'll have to instanciate a
Filewith the picked paths;
- Simplified usage, now you only need to use
FilePicker.platform.pickFiles()with desired parameters which will return a
List<PlatformFile>containing the picked data;
- Added classes
PlatformFileclasses with helper getters;
- On Android all picked files are scoped cached which should result in most of files being available. Caching process is only made once, so once done, the picked instance should be the same;
- On iOS picking audio now supports multiple and cloud picks;
- Added parameter
withDatathat allows file data to be immediately available on memory as
PlatformFileinstance). This is particularly helpful on web or if you are going to upload to somehwere else;
- Major refactor with some clean-up and improvements;
- Single methods such as
getMultiFile()are no longer availble in favor o
Go: Updates MacOS directory picker to applescript (thank you @trister1997).
Android: fixes picking paths from Downloads directory on versions below Android Q.
Android: adds support to non-legacy picking on Android Q or above (thank you @lakshyab1995).
Fixes an issue that could prevent
1.13.0 from being built due to missing
allowCompression property that will define if media (video & image) files are allowed to be compressed by OS when picked. On Android this has no effect as it already returns the original file or an integral copy.
getDirectoryPath() desktop (go) implementation.
Updates tearDown() call order on Android's implementation.
Updates README file (iOS preview).
Updates README file.
onFileLoading handler for every picking method that will provide picking status:
FilePickerStatus.done so you can, for example, display a custom loader.
getDirectoryPath() method that allows you to select and pick directory paths. Android, requires SDK 21 or above for this to work, and iOS requires iOS 11 or above.
Adds a temporary workaround on Android where it can trigger
onRequestPermissionsResult twice, related to Flutter issue 49365 for anyone affected in Flutter versions below 1.14.6.
clearTemporaryFiles() that allows you to explicitly remove cached files — on Android applies typically to those picked from remote providers, on iOS all picked files are cached.
Updates podspec to use only PhotoGallery from DKImagePickerController (thanks @jamesdixon!)
Minor fix on
getFile() method — should affect only those on 1.8.0.
FileType.media that will allow you to pick video and images at the same time. On iOS, this will let you pick directly from Photos app (gallery), if you want to use Files app, you must use
FileType.custom with desired extensions.
Updates iOS multi gallery picker dependency and adds a modal loading while fetching exporting assets.
Added support for multi-picks of videos and photos from Photos app on iOS through DKImagePicker — use any of the
getMulti methods with
FileType.video. From now on, you'll need to add
use_frameworks! in your ios/Podfile.

- Similar to
getFile, now there is also a
getMultiFilewhich behaves the same way, but returning a list of files instead.
- Updates Android SDK deprecated code.
- Sometimes when a big file was being picked from a remote directory (GDrive for example), the UI could be blocked. Now this shouldn't happen anymore.
Bug fix: Fixes an issue that could cause a crash when picking files with very long names.

null value in the
getFile() when the picker is canceled.
Bug fix: Fixes an issue on Android, where other activity would try to call
FilePicker's result object when it shouldn't.
FileType.CAMERAis no longer available, if you need it, you can use this package along with image_picker.
- You can now pick multiple files by using the
getMultiFilePath()method which will return a
Map<String,String>with all paths from selected files, where the key matches the file name and the value its path. Optionally, it also supports filtering by file extension, otherwise all files will be selectable. Nevertheless, you should keep using
getFilePath()for single path picking.
- You can now use
FileType.AUDIOto pick audio files. In iOS this will let you select from your music library. Paths from DRM protected files won't be loaded (see README for more details).
getFile()utility method that does the same of
getFilePath()but returns a
Fileobject instead, for the returned path.
Bug fixes and updates
- This package is no longer attached to the image_picker, and because of that, camera permission is also no longer required.
- Fixes an issue where sometimes the InputStream wasn't being properly closed. Also, its exception is now being forward to the plugin caller.
- Fixes an issue where the picker, when canceled, wasn't calling the result callback on the underlying platforms.
Breaking change: Migrate from the deprecated original Android Support Library to AndroidX. This shouldn't result in any functional changes, but it requires any Android apps using this plugin to also migrate if they're using the original support library.
- Updates README file.
FileType.PDFwas removed since now it can be used along with custom file types by using the
FileType.CUSTOMand providing the file extension (e.g. PDF, SVG, ZIP, etc.).
