SS 3. Limit on the total size of the user downloaded files




14 September 2012 at 8:31pm Community Member, 5 Posts

There was a need to display the size of the downloaded user file, and I have decided it is simple:

SomeFunction {
$userID = Member :: currentUserID ();
return File :: get () -> filter (array ("OwnerID" => "$userID"));

and in the template as follows:

<% Control SomeFunction%>
File Name: $Name | File Size: $Size
<% end_control%>

And there were no questions.

But there is another need - to prevent a user to download a file, if it has already reached the limit on the total size of all files, for example, the limit of N mb. I read the manual, but did not understand what to do. If the table "File", it would be a field "Size", I think I would have found the answer, but it is not there :-) Should I use $Size somewhere inside SomeFunction? Tell me, please, what to do? :-)
Can I do without creating an extra class File (for example, UserFiles extend File)? :-)
