Re: I couldnt download certain attachment from the application

 

Hello,

 

There is currently a bug with attachments in the mobile clients that prevents opening attachments which contain a space in their name. This has been fixed and should be available in the next release (3.1807.4)

Re: I couldnt download certain attachment from the application

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Which browser or mobile device do you use to run your app?

 

I have made a test on my side (downloading a attachment file whose size is more than 1 MB) within my Chrome browser and don't have the issue that you mentioned. The screenshot as below:Test1.gif

 

 

If you use Internet Explorer (IE browser) to run your app, Attachment download is only supported within SharePoint custom list forms. Please check the following article for more details about Attachment control limitations:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/controls/control-attachments#limitations

 

More details about SharePoint custom list forms, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/customize-list-form

 

Please take a try to run your app within another browser or mobile device (Android device, iOS device or Windows phone), then try the download functionality again to check if the issue is solved.

 

Best regards,

Kris

I'm using Samsung J5 to run my application. My friend who is using an iPhone faced the same problem.

 

 

This is the screen shot of the Application. i can download a small sized picture. but it shows error when i try to download the bigger size.

Re: I couldnt download certain attachment from the application

Hello! I am still receiving this error message.. My app is on release 3.18082.42 so it is past the release this bug should have been fixed in... I am trying to open file attachments in Chrome and they do not have any spaces in their name.  There are some dots though.. Any thoughts ?
