How To: Find more information for using the ExportToFile request

Procedure

Is there more information for the aFormat and aListofParameters when using the
ExportToFile request?

Cause:

Using the online help hypertext jumps only states that the aFormat is a String, and aListofParameters is a List, but gives no further information or examples.

Answer:

The aFormat portion of the request is a String of the type of file to be exported, such as JPEG. The aListOfParameters portion of the request is a list for the resolution of the exported file. The following is all the current formats and their associated resolutions.
