      Hi,

       

      Is it possible to read .xls file using cep api. I'm trying the following code but for some reasons it returns it return an empty string:


      var filetypes = new Array();

      filetypes[0] = "xls";

      filetypes[1] = "xlsx";

       

      var result = window.cep.fs.showOpenDialog(false,false,'SELECT Excel','/tmp/',filetypes);

      alert(result.data); //displays the path to the selected file


      var result1 = window.cep.fs.readFile(result.data);

      if (result.err == 0) {

         //success
         alert(result1.data); // displays file content
      }

      else {

      alert(false);

      }
