Defines an IF conditional step looking for the existence of a file or a directory.

The IfFileExists step is one of Convertigo Sequencer conditional steps. This step contains other steps executed only if the file or directory defined through the Source property exists.
Note: In Convertigo Studio, when an IfFileExists step is created in a sequence, it can be easily replaced by an IfFileExistsThenElse, using the right-click menu on the step and choosing the option Change to > IfFileExistsThenElse. The Source property remains the same and the steps present in the IfFileExists are moved to the Then sub-step.

Property Type Category Description
Comment String standard Describes the object comment to include in the documentation report.
This property generally contains an explanation about the object.
Is active boolean standard Defines whether the step is active.
Source JS expression standard Defines the path of the file or directory which existence has to be checked.
This property is a JavaScript expression that is evaluated during the sequence execution and gives the path of the file or directory which existence has to be checked.
This path is either absolute or relative to Convertigo environment. Relative paths starting with:

./ are relative to Convertigo workspace,
.// are relative to current project folder.
Output boolean expert Defines whether the XML generated by this step should be appended to the resulting XML.
Set this property to true to add the step’s resulting XML to the sequence’s output XML (default value for steps generating XML). Set this property to false to prevent the steps’s XML result to appear in the sequence’s output XML.
Setting this property to false does not prevent the step’s generated XML from being used as a source by other steps.
