    Default Getting the file size of an email attachment


    Good Day,

    I would like to ask for your help on how to get the file size of an email attachment.

    I used the following code to get this information.

    l_EndUserObj.attachmentSize = mailAttachments.length();

    The output is constant 2 even though the file size for each email attachment differ.

    When I tried to use the getsize() I'm just getting an error that it is not a function.

    I'm using BPM Studio during my coding.

    Many Thanks,
