Linking a file

I want to have a button that adds a linked file to a richtext field. This button should display a "Open file" dialogue box and nothing else and should display the file as an icon.

Can anyone help me out?

What do you really want ????????????????????
Attachments ????????
Can you give us else an example, because I don't know what you really want ?
Do you want in a rich text field icons(attachments) ?
You can just copy-past the file and he place an icon for you.
Or do you want a dialog list with several files, and if you choose one, he add that in to your rich text field ?
If you do that than all the icons are the same.

What I realy want is a field that displays all the attachements but that the user can't edit. I want a button that would add attachements to this field always in the same way. Because right now the user can add files as icons or the contents and that's a problem. I don't want the user to be able to display the contents of a file in the documents.

So if the user wants to add a file I want to follow these steps:
1) Click on the button
2) Choose a file from an open file diologue box
3) the file is added (as an icon) automaticly to the field

What you want is how the attachments work on the web.
If your databse is a webdatabase, just choose create ==> embedded element ==> file upload control
Else if it's a db for the client, you must use Lotusscript for doing the same thing. But that isn't so easy.
So, is it for notes or for the web

For now,

Use the
@Command([EditGotoField];"FIELDNAME") along with
@Command( [EditInsertFileAttachment] )

Web information will follow if you insist.

Arun,

Then your field is still editable.
And you can add also other information, and I thought that he don't want to have the possibility to add other things as attachments.
For the web, just add the embedded element =>Upload Control
It does what you want

PS: Arun, did you've a look to my question

Thanks Arun, it works great.

Now if I can just find a way to make it uneditable, i'll be all set

There are a couple of ways to insert an attachment.
But they need all an editable field.
