So I have a number of maps on Arc GIS online that have geodatabase attachments (PDFs, charts, etc). When I migrate these maps to AppStudio for Arc GIS, the attachments are now missing. Is there a setting to enable attachments that I just haven't been able to find?
Can you give a bit more information?
- What are you adding to your app: Webmap or Feature Service?
- What do you mean by attachments are missing - You cannot see attachments or how to query for attachments?
If you are working with a feature service directly, check out the attachment sample app which shows how to get and add attachments from a feature service.
Thanks! I've been working with the attachment editor for a few days. I've hit a snag trying to change the display text of the attachments. I want to strip a number of characters from the front of the string, and a number of characters from the end and keep everything in between.
For example: "Text_text_text_for_LOCATION_(text).png." I want to strip everything but LOCATION
Here is the code I've been working with in QT:
text: name.substr(22, name.length()-14);
I've found this substring formatting mentioned on multiple sites, but I just can't get it to work. I keep getting LOCATION_(text).png
I am assuming your "LOCATION" value varies with attachments. Otherwise you can just hard code the name as "LOCATION"
FOR instance aa_bb_cc_for_Kansas_(ss).png & ffff_sss_ee_for_Redlands_(eer).png.
If this is how your attachments are, then you could use the following split method
text: name.split('_')[name.split('_').length -2]
This assumes that you have no "_" in "LOCATION" value and also you have exactly one more "_" after the "LOCATION" value.
If not then we need to change the logic for attachment name extraction. In that case please provide more examples of your attachments.
