Uploading and downloading of files in native app

Hi, 

I decided to start another forum because i am still confused about the process of uploading and downloading of files (such as pdf) in native app.

Let me elaborate what i am currently doing. In my app, there is a page for users to upload a pdf file of financial statement. Then, there is also a page where users can download the pdf file when clicking on the list item as shown in my attached oml. 

I would like to know about the process of uploading and download of files in a native app in general as I am quite confused. When i try to upload a file using an android phone, it will access files already in the device, so when i click on the file i want to upload, it will upload correctly. However, the problem lies when i want to download the pdf file and view it in the app. I am confused with the terms of "filepath", "storagetype" and "mime type". When i upload a pdf file on android, does that file has a URL? 

Could anyone help to guide me in the whole process of uploading of pdf files, downloading and viewing them in native app? Thank you very much. 

Hi Jolene,

To hide complexity I would like you to point you to the article Enable End-Users to Upload Files and upload widget

Hi Jolene


1.Upload-please refer as suggested by Kumar

2.Download-you need to do something like below.

You need a mobile app that redirects to a web page where the download is performed, using the download widget.


Let me know incase need any demo example of that.


Thanks,

Hi Salman, 

is it possible to not use a web page and download it in the native app instead?
