File Control

The File control allows you to display a file to the user. The user can click the file to download the file. The file must be uploaded to our cloud storage.

The File control consists of a box showing the file type, file name and caption. The caption is optional.

The File control should not be mistaken for the File Upload control. The File control is read only, i.e. it is used to simply display files to the user so that they can download them. You upload the file in the template and it is displayed in the checklist. The File Upload control is an input control, it is used to allow the user to upload one or more files from the checklist.

Add to the Template

The File control can be added from the controls toolbar in the Template.

Once you have added the control you can click the 'Upload' button to select the file you want to upload.

Now that the file has been uploaded, you can set the file name and the caption (optional) using the text boxes.

Use in the Checklist

The File control displays in the Checklist as below.
