InputFormat Property

 getInputFormat(): X12translatorInputFormats;

 setInputFormat(inputFormat: X12translatorInputFormats): void;

enum X12translatorInputFormats { xifXML, xifJSON, xifX12 }

Default Value



This property specifies the format of the input data. The value set here, along with OutputFormat, determines how the data is converted when Translate is called.

Possible values are:

  • 0 (ifXML)
  • 1 (ifJSON)
  • 3 (ifX12)
Before calling Translate, both InputFormat and OutputFormat must be specified. Translation from XML or JSON to EDI and vice versa are supported. If InputFormat is ifXML or ifJSON, OutputFormat must be an EDI format. Similarly, if InputFormat is an EDI format, OutputFormat must be ofXML or ofJSON.

This property is not available at design time.
