require(["esri/widgets/Attachments"], function(Attachments) { /* code goes here */ });
Class: esri/widgets/Attachments
Inheritance: Attachments Widget Accessor
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.15

This widget allows users to view and edit attachments associated with a feature and is considered a standalone experience that can be utilized in widgets such Popup and Editor. When viewing attachments, the attachment's thumbnail, file format, and size are displayed. The Popup widget uses this widget's functionality to display attachments. Whereas the Editor widget has the functionality to edit attachments automatically configured within it.

If the associated feature layer(s) contains an attachment capability, the widget will recognize it as such. And based on the functionality needed, will display the attachment for viewing or editing.

If needing to edit attachments, the feature layer must first be enabled for editing. The ability to create, update, and delete attachments will display based on the feature layer's editing permissions.

Known Limitations

  • Editing attachments is currently available using the Editor widget. Future API releases will have additional functionality to edit outside of this widget.
  • Batch attachment editing is not supported.

  container: document.createElement("div")
});

// Add the widget to the top-right corner of the view
view.ui.add(basemapGallery, {
  position: "top-right"
});
// Specify an already-defined HTML div element in the widget's container

const basemapGallery = new BasemapGallery({
