Class: QgsProcessingParameterFile

class qgis.core.QgsProcessingParameterFile(name: str, description: str = '', behavior: QgsProcessingParameterFile.Behavior = QgsProcessingParameterFile.File, extension: str = '', defaultValue: Any = None, optional: bool = False, fileFilter: str = '')

Bases: QgsProcessingParameterDefinition

Constructor for QgsProcessingParameterFile.

The extension argument allows for specifying a file extension associated with the parameter (e.g. “html”). Use fileFilter for a more flexible approach which allows for multiple file extensions. Only one of extension or fileFilter should be specified, if both are specified then fileFilter takes precedence.
