File:GetBinaryContents() needs to be documented

I would like to know what :GetBinaryContents() does, there is no documentation and I would like if there were.

Page: https://developer.roblox.com/en-us/api-reference/function/File/GetBinaryContents

Weird that you’d just pick out that one.

Same goes for the other properties and methods of File: GetTemporaryId and property Size. The links lead nowhere for all three.

However, I don’t think a page is needed for any of them, as they are extremely self explanatory and explained on the page for File anyway… All I’d suggest is getting rid of the links on the File page as links to non-existent pages is confusing.

Sorry for the bump, I was reading up the other day on the file object. :GetBinaryContents() does need to be documented, so does the other properties and functions. If someone could address this issue then I can continue development with my plugin.

It is documented (thought the doc pages aren’t populated past an overview)

No, I’m pretty sure they meant the function itself, not the object. Click on the function and you will clearly see the problem. Anyway, if you make a plugin that works with third party services (for example Blender) then it would be really helpful to document these things.

We still cannot access some properties and functions of the file class

Hey all! Thanks for reporting this - it’s definitely an issue. I’ve just flagged it with engineering, so we can get those pages displaying (and then filled out!)
