attachment file uploaded on SP custom list, and read in at Silverlight control RRS feed

  • Question

  • MOSS 2007:

    I have a Silverlight control that reads in data from a custom SharePoint list. At SharePoint, users may upload an attachment file, specifically in .pdf formats. In the Silverlight application, i have Page.xaml and ThumbnailDetails.xaml. On load, Page.xaml displays a listbox of custom list items, where i may select any one & load its related information on ThumbnailDetails.xaml.

    So how may i actually reference the PDF file uploaded by users and display the clickable link on ThumbnailDetails.xaml? Currently im using lists.asmx tgt with CAML queries @ Page.xaml.cs

    Thank you!

  • Hi miiikewong,

    If you would like to download the attachment using lists web service, please refer to Steve's reply in the following thread:

    If you just want to open a link, you can redirect the end-user to a web page, and in the page, use the same code to download the file manually by the end-user.
