CSS Form Builder -- Form Function Issue

CSS Form Builder -- Form Function Issue

I bought a super suite a few days ago. And, I got CSS Form Builder installed a couple of days ago. I managed to create a simple contact form with a medium size of HTML editor. When I tried to get this form to send me email once it is submitted inside Form Function, I encountered a problem --- I can not select the "submitted file" inside "Create Email Message: Attachments".

After filling in all the infos for "from", "to". "subject" and then
click "edit" to bring me to "Create Email Message", and
click "attachment" icon to bring me to "Create Email Message: Attachments",
The "Add" icon in this "Create Email Message: Attachments" window always takes me to "Enter Value". It does not allow me to choose the "recordset loop" or "submitted file" ( in which I need to use ).

I am very new to this product and am not having lucks in resolving this issue. Please advise how I shall proceed with this issue.

Thanks and regards.

you will only be able to select the Submitted File option if your form contains a File Field, an HTML Editor filed will not work for attaching a file to the email. It needs to be a file field type.

the recordset option will only be available if there is a recordset defined on the page.

Thanks for your email Jason. I know now a bit more about this product.

Since the Submitted File option is only available if your form contains a File Field ( In mycase, I did not need this yet), how does webassist normally handle the form load for those data entered by the client? I mean after a form is filled in by a client and the client hit "submit icon:, how does webassist keep the data entered by this client?

I am totally new to this product. I do need your guide to effectively make use of this webassist.

Thanks again.

I'm not sure i understand your question.

Do you mean how does the form data get transferred to the email?

If you select the option to Create File for the email, a template is created for the email, this template contains code to loop through each of the form elements and write the value in the email.

CSS FB attachment

I have CSS form builder and my form works OK, and it will send an attachment to a folder on my server OK, but i cannot get it to attach a file to the email. I clicked the "paper clip" for the attachment and selected the image element on the form, but it still does not show up with the email. thanks
