  • Hello,

    there is no out-of-the-box control for that functionality in InfoPath. Drag and drop is heavily dependent on JavaScript and/or jQuery and frameworks that build on the two. 

    InfoPath does not utilize these frameworks.

    You can use a button to upload a file. Some third party tools, like Qdabra's QRules (not free, but worth every cent) have tools to manage file uploads into browser forms with a few more bells and whistles. But no InfoPath technique I have seen so far allows drag and drop to attach a file. 

    Don't shoot the messenger.

    cheers, teylyn
