how to get the complete path of a file using Add picture object (or ather tool ?)?

Hi !

In my approval app, I need to retreive and save a link to a shared file (in a shared folder). For security reason, I cannot duplicate the file. I can only save the path to it. So using the addpicture.filename , I can allow users to brwose for a file and retreive its name. Still the location (ie folders) are missing. Is this an other way to browse files and get the full path back ?

 

Thank you very much

Fred

Hi @fsim ,

 

Do you want to retrieve the local file location link from the local computer?

I am afraid, currently, it isn't supported to write back the file path of local file. If you want this feature, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum. If your feedback is high voted by other members, PowerApps Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.
