I have a GP service which takes as input a GPDataFile. I want to be able to upload a file from a local machine and then let a GP service to process it. This functionality is working as expected when I use the Upload Item with ArcGIS Server.

 

However I am wondering if this is really necessary. Is it possible to supply the html file object directly?

 

HTML code to browse to a file.

 

JavaScript code to get the file. Returns an File object.

document.getElementById("uploadInput").files[0]

 

Can this File object be given as input directly to a GP service which accepts GPDataFile as input?
