Ionic File.dataDirectory

Typescript Error
Property ‘dataDirectory’ does not exist on type ‘typeof File’.

Any help is appreciated!

Are you using ionic-native v3, by chance?

not, is ionic-native 2.4.1…

File.dataDirectory no funciona en ionic-native 2.4.1.

La solución fue declarar globalmente la variable cordova:

import { File, Transfer } from “ionic-native”;

declare var cordova: any;


y luego:


hola, funciono!

muchas gracias.

I would recommend upgrading to 2.8.1.

thanks, now it works like the example in the docs.

could you explain clearly in this part

cordova is not defined issue? do you hava any idea? I followed the @williamdelvalle suggestions

Don’t. If they were ever relevant, they definitely aren’t now.
