Is it possible to preview the attachment in Attachment Control instead of downloading?

The new attachment control is superb and users can take pictures directly from mobile and upload as the attachment of a list item. However, when they try to view the attachment from the control, the only option is to download. Is there any way to preview the attachments from the control or any best practice suggestion? The only workaround I can think about is when viewing the list item, instead of showing attachment control, use a gallery? Thanks!

I don't think there's a way to preview the selected attachment from the Attachments control. Your idea with using a gallery though is very good (I assume you want to preview attachments that can be easily bouind, such as images). What you could do is bind Attachments1.Attachments to a gallery but do not display them unless the uiser clicks on the "Preview" button. For exapmle, Attachments control shows "Image1", "Image2", "Image3" and so on and the gallery has "Preview Image1", "Preview Image2", and so on.
