File Upload Area

File control for uploading multiple files. Supports drag and drop.

Files will be passed to the InsertUpdate procedure in a temporary table with the columns FileId, FileName, ContentType and File. The FileId column will be set to the given file id if it is an existing file that was not changed, otherwise it will be set to NULL.

It is possible to specify which file extensions the user can select from and the maximum file size allowed by creating an input validation using the File category.

Start value: Existing files JSON. (7.29 and forward)
Return value: Temporary table #<fieldname>

	"contentType": "text/plain",
	"contentSize": "123"
