Disable Attachment Download on View-Only Form

Hi, 

 

We're working on a form & we would like to make attachment names read-only & not download-able. The user can only see a read-only form (backed by a SharePoint List) but when they click, they can download the attachment. Can this feature be disabled? 

 

I guess if it cannot be disabled on the DataCard item, I suppose the work around could be logic to read the names of the attachments & not use an attachment data card.... 

 

Thanks

M

Hi @mschechter1 ,

A bit of a workaround, but this works:-

  1. Add a Custom Card to the form
  2. Add a List Box into the card
  3. Set the Items of the List Box to ThisItem.Attachments
  4. Set the DisplayMode of the List Box to DisplayMode.View

It will display only the names of the attachments.
