This tab is available when editing the content of a document using the WYSIWYG editor (e.g. on the Form tab, through user contributions etc.) and it provides a way to insert the attachments of the current document.


From here, you can:


Insert unsorted attachments of the document into the text.

Select an attachment using the Select (Next) icon or by simply clicking the appropriate line (or tile/thumbnail in the other view modes).

Upload new attachments to the document using the New file (NewFile) button.


The following actions can be performed with the listed attachments:


After clicking the View (View) icon, the attachment will be opened in a new window.

Using the Delete (Delete) icon, you can remove the attachment from the document.

Using the Move up (Up) and Move down (Down) icons, you can re-order the attachments. This option is available only in the List view mode. The order is stored in the AttachmentOrder property of each attachment. You can enter AttachmentOrder into the ORDER BY expression property of a displaying web part to have the attachments ordered accordingly.

Using the Edit (Edit) icon, you can edit metadata of the file. However, clicking this icon placed beside an image opens the image in the built-in image editor.

Using the Update (Update) icon, you can replace the original attachment with a new one.


The properties that can be set for the selected item are different depending on its type:


Image properties

Audio and Video properties

Flash properties


Detailed information about document attachments can be found in the File management -> Document attachments chapter in the Content management section of the Developer's Guide.
