I built a PA app which uses SharePoint List as datasource. The list includes attachments and adding/deleting those works well. The problem is in opening attacments by using the Launch formula. They are loaded to workstation instead of opening the documents in O365.
A new browser window flashes open-close when trying to Launch and then the file is saved i.e. loaded to workstation. I tried this both with galleries and datatables.
All goes well if the file is in SP Library but with SP List Attachments it doesn't work.
Also, there is no OnSelect event available in Attachment object even if some documentation is telling so?
Chrome (popups allowed) - Update: the problem seems to be in browser. In Edge the launching works. The problem still is that because of the SharePoint my client is stuck with Chrome. Is there some settings or add-ins for Chrome that would solve this?
I just checked and it is true that Attachments control does not have OnSelect property. I will try to report this.
About the launching problem, is there any pop-up windown while launching in chrome?
thanks for your reply. There is no pop-up shown in Chrome. A new tab (page) opens and closes in browser which takes a few seconds, after which the automatic download to own workstation starts.
Some more information: If i have a plain *.txt document, it opens to new Chrome browser page. If i have a document which requires MS Office (Excel, Word, etc.) to open then the problem occures.
Office 365 is in use.
