The File Upload component allows users to upload files to the Gateway or other locations from a Perspective session using a script action on the onFileReceived component event. For an example, see Download and Upload Files page. 

The component has different appearances based on its width. When initially dragged onto your View, a Browse button will be visible and paired with "Drag files here" text. At smaller widths, the component defaults to a simple cloud icon and no text. This icon can be changed using the fileUploadIcon property settings.


Most Properties have binding options. For more information on Bindings, see Types of Bindings in Perspective.
This section only documents the Props Category of properties. The other Categories are described on the Perspective Component Properties page.
