Especific uses #

On mobile platforms the file picker will open a default document picker if used with FileType.any. If you want to be able to pick documents and images in the same form field, you will need to define different file types and thus different selectors. To achieve this use the typeSelectors parameter. This way the user will see two buttons to open a file picker for documents and a file picker for the photos gallery.

For example:

FormBuilderFilePicker(
  name: "attachments",
  previewImages: false,
  allowMultiple: true,
  withData: true,
  typeSelectors: [
    TypeSelector(
      type: FileType.any,
      selector: Row(
        children: <Widget>[
          Icon(Icons.add_circle),
          Padding(
            padding: const EdgeInsets.only(left: 8.0),
            child: Text("Add documents"),
          ),
        ],
      ),
    ),
    if (!kIsWeb)
      TypeSelector(
        type: FileType.image,
        selector: Row(
          children: <Widget>[
            Icon(Icons.add_photo_alternate),
            Padding(
              padding: const EdgeInsets.only(left: 8.0),
              child: Text("Add images"),
            ),
          ],
        ),
      ),
    ],
  )
