Error description

  • You receive an error in the Document Attachment control when you
    create a document that has a file name that starts with an "x"
    and no title.

Local fix

  • Add a title or rename the file without starting with "x", "u",
    or any character that becomes a special character by adding a
    backslash.
    

Problem summary

  • When the title for a document is not provided, the document
    attachment control uses the path of the file as the title. When
    the file path contains a document starting with "x", the
    document name then contains the path, which includes "\x" (for
    example C:\fakepath\x1.txt). Because "\x" is a special
    character, when the server returns a JSON string with this
    character the JSON becomes invalid, which causes an error when
    the documents are being retrieved. Any character that becomes a
    special character by adding a backslash (\) causes this issue.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be incorporated into a later release that extracts
    the file name from the path when a document is added. The fix
    also escapes the characters returned in the JSON by the server
    to avoid other similar problems.
    

Temporary fix
