Trying to upload file using pzMultiFilePath control


I'm trying to upload a file to pega using a custom section but I'm getting this message on clipboard (pyWorkPage):

  1. There is 1 error
  2. .pxAttachName: File Sample03.pdf doesn't exist

I'm using CustomMultiFilePath control (saved from OOTB pzMultiFilePath) and CustomUploadFile activity (saved from OOTB pyUploadFile, called inside this control). If I try to upload this file using pyCaseAttachments section (OOTB), it works and after that, my custom section starts to work just for this file. Probably there's something I need to set or some activity I need to call.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

I would start with the OOTB functionality that you know works, then slowly add on your customizations. This way it will help isolate and pinpoint if you have a logic/error in your custom control or if you have an issue with your activity.

Once you've isolated it that much, use tracer to understand where that error message is being generated/thrown from.

That should hopefully guide you in finding the root cause of your custom implementation.

Yes, but this OOTB funcionality calls a modal for uploading files, and my custom section is opened inside a modal. When I try to use this OOTB section on my solution, I got an error because pega don't allow to open a modal inside another one.

Could you temporarily call your custom section outside of the modal context?  That would allow you to follow Rett's suggestion of adding your customizations to pinpoint where the issue is stemming from.   Once you've got your custom control working, you can then slot it back into your modal context.

Hope this helps!

Hi yurispinto,

I got the same issue attaching files. Were you able to resolve this issue?
