  • Expected results: File will be attached with name "foo" (value of .FileName property)

Root Cause

Attach Content control is for mobile devices and attachment settings are not applicable for desktop.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior :

Attach Content control is for Mobile devices and the setting that appear during the design time are supported only for Mobile.

When the control is used in desktop Pega just shows the modal to do attachments which is an existing control written for desktop purpose.

So attachment settings are ignored for desktop and applicable only for Mobile.
