Downloading an attachment in qListView

This question has been answered by kenny.wu-quest

Hi everybody. I've got a qListView component with a list (Departments) and a child list (Employees). Everything works fine, but now I've got to download an attachment contained in the Employee item. Is there a way to click and download an attachment directly from the qListView component?

Thanks.

  • Hi Fernando,

     

    Sorry, I assume that you are configuring a list to qListView, instead of the document list. if yes, qListView cannot support this feature, if you select the Attachment filed into Display Field setting, that field will be render as an icon. I suggest that you can add the Edit field into the Display Field setting, then user can click this icon to navigate to the edit page, and he can download the attachment in this page. And also, the attachment cannot display the file name currently.

  • Obviously the one to many relationship will not make this possible in the List View,  The only way is to add a web part above it with a List Form and just have the attachments in it.  This is not too ugly.
