Hi, I would like to allow users to use the File Manager to select a generic file (e.g. a Word document), so that the filepath for that file is passed to a function as a string, instead of passing a tempfile object.
E.g. User selects a Word document, the filepath for that document is then passed to a function which loads and processes the text from the document before returning some output.
I’ve tried using gr.File(), but this only seems to pass the actual file as a tempfile. I think gr.Image(type=“filepath”) does what I want, but this only works for images, not other filetypes.
Any help would be really appreciated!
demo = gr.Blocks() with demo: gr.Markdown("Upload a document to extract questions and get suggested responses.") with gr.Row(): file_input = gr.File() file_output = gr.Textbox(label="Questions") file_button = gr.Button("Extract Questions") question_box = gr.Textbox(label="Question") suggest_button = gr.Button("Suggest Answers") suggest_output = gr.Textbox(label="Suggested Answer") file_button.click( fn=lambda x : extract_questions(document=x), inputs=file_input, outputs=file_output ) suggest_button.click( fn=suggest_answer, inputs=question_box, outputs=suggest_output) demo.launch()
