FileIFrameField with file parsing

Go to End

I'm using SilverStripe 2.4.7 and I want to add a method that parses the file which I have just uploaded with FileIFrameField. The thing that has me stumped is where to put this. I was thinking of the onAfterWrite method but the file only gets uploaded after the rest of the fields have been saved for the first time so I'm not sure this would work.

My question is: What is the best practice for this kind of thing?
