JungleDocs | GetItemAttachments function

You can use the GetItemAttachments() function to retrieve a list of item attachments. In this tutorial, you will learn how to do this.


Retrieving attachments in reports

1. Create a table with a  repeated section.

2. Select the table and insert a plain text control. Then, open the text control properties and type GetItemAttachments() in the Title and Tag fields.

3. Select a table cell and insert a rich text control inside. In the control's Title and tag field, type either of the following properties:

AttachmentFileName - displays attachment file name.

AttachmentUrl - displays attachment URL address.

Displaying image attachments

If the attachment is an image, you can make JungleDocs display it directly in the report.

1. Follow steps 1-2 from the previous instruction.

2. Insert a picture control in the table.

3. Open control properties and insert  Image(AttachmentUrl) in the Title and Tag fields.

Retrieving attachments as hyperlinks

instead of displaying a file name of an attached document or image, you can make JungleDocs display a link to it.

1. See step 1 from the previous list.

2. Insert a rich text control in the table.

3. Open control properties and insert  Hyperlink(AttachmentUrl; AttachmentFileName) in Title and Tag fields.

4. Add hyperlink formatting to the control (otherwise, the hyperlink will adopt a plain text format).

Example

Below you can see a part of a document template with a repeated section configured and the GetItemAttachments() function applied already. All the different ways to retrieve attachments are illustrated, too.
