Adding attachment types

Define new attachment types to increase the range of files that you can save as data items and reuse in your application, for example, screenshots.

  1. In Dev Studio, create a class for the attachment type that you want to add and specify the following inheritance settings for the class:

    • Pattern inheritance from the PegaPs-Data-Attachment class
    • Directed inheritance from a subclass of the Data-WorkAttach- class that matches the new attachment type

    If the existing subclasses do not cover the attachment type that you want to add, create a new subclass.

    For more information about creating classes, see Creating a class.

  2. Override the AttachmentScreen section in the new class to add the fields for the new attachment type that you require, for example, add a drop-down list to specify the category of the attachment.

    For more information, see Sections.

  3. Save the SaveAttachment activity of the Data-WorkAttach- class into the new class and change its name to AttachmentSave.
