I am trying to display the name of a file that is uploaded as soon as I upload it using the file manager widget. I find that I cannot do this unless I save the file first (press the save button on a page) and reopen the page, then the name will appear. I’ve tried to use a microflow timer to run a microflow to commit the file object, but even after I commit it , it is showing that the file has no contents. I have even tried using the file dropper widget but have experienced too many inconsistencies/error messages using it. Is this a possibility in Mendix?
Per default Mendix does not store your file in the contents attribute. Mendix stores files on the File server of the application server that runs your application.
