File Upload Control for XForm: 8.6 CMS


We need to add a file upload (browse and upload) control / feature on our Xforms. Is it possible? If YEs how do we enable it?

Not out of the box with old xforms no. Possible to implement? Definitely!

Or upgrade and use the new Forms addon...

Which is now out of beta...

I would upgrade :)

Just did it for 2 other sites and after 7.5 it's a smooth ride...

Thank you Daniel for that quick response. I think too that going the upgrade route is the way to go..

I tried installing "Episerver.Form" nuget in one of our CMS 9.6 website but wasn't able to find a control on Xform. But I do see a separate block of type "File Upload". Is that what you are talking about? So we just drag and drop another block on the page using the Xform?

New Forms is basically a new functionality from scratch and has nothing to do with xforms from what I know

So you can build your forms dynamically with blocks for each part including file upload etc.

Was definitely time to retire xforms :)

<p>Yeah I see. It is the Form Container block type you are talking about. It is definitely way better than the Xforms. With drag and drop it is a life saver. I see the <strong>File Upload </strong>there as an option too.</p> <p>I hear you. Xforms had to go.. :) Thanks again!!</p>
