FILE CHOICE creates a data entry box for users to identify a local file to be used within an EASAP. In some cases, an EASAP will require that the user specify and upload a particular type of file as input, such as a spreadsheet. To upload a file, the user must first click on the browse button and then locate and select their file.
Note: The uploaded files should have their file extensions written with lower case letters (e.g.
Sample.jpg will work
Sample.Jpg will cause unexpected behaviour).
|Label:||Text displayed to the left of box|
|File Filter:||Comma-separated list of filters to apply in file locations. One asterisk * can be used as a wildcard at the beginning of the filter. Examples:
|Target Directory:||Name of sub folder of EASAP main folder in which to copy selected file|
|Rename To:||Filename to which the selected file is renamed|
|Show if:||Logical expression, if TRUE then box shown, if FALSE then box NOT shown|
|Enable if:||Logical expression, if TRUE then box enabled, if FALSE then box NOT enabled|
|Style:||A reference to a USER INTERFACE STYLE that controls the visual appearance of this object|
|Input Style:||A reference to a USER INTERFACE STYLE that controls the visual appearance of this objects input area|
|Delimiter:||Character to act as delimiter in DORs. (default→'%')|
|Tool tip:||Text to be displayed as a tool tip|
Note: File filters in a FILE CHOICE can be complete file names or just fragments using * as wildcard. For example, filtering on just file extensions is common (e.g. *.gif, *.jpg, *.bmp, etc…)
