I have been searching for days on how to insert a working "attach file" button into a PDF form I'm creating. I am working with LiveCycle ES4. I am able to open other examples where the "attach file" button works but when I try to implement in my own form, it doesn't work. I have tried using script from several examples but none work when I try to implement in my own PDF. Do I need to enable rights via LiveCycle somehow?

I have already tried the following:

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////// with this option, nothing happens when I click the button ////////////////////

form1.#subform[0].AddAttachment::click - (JavaScript, client)

var oObj = event.target;

var fileAttachments = oObj.dataObjects;//dataObjects returns all dataObjects(attachments)in the pdf

if(attachmentsList.length > 0)

    {

       

        oObj.importDataObject(fileAttachments.length);

        var oDataObj = oObj.getDataObject(fileAttachments.length);

        attachmentsList.addItem(oDataObj.path);

        console.println("The attachments size is...."+fileAttachments.length);

        NoOfAttachments.rawValue = fileAttachments.length+1;

       

    }

else

{

    //we need to associate each file attachment  imported into the document with a key

    //then get the file attachment's name and add it to the drop down list

        oObj.importDataObject(counter.value);

        var oDataObj = oObj.getDataObject(counter.value);

        attachmentsList.addItem(oDataObj.path);

        NoOfAttachments.rawValue = 1;

   

}
