How do I add Attachments to a form

Guest

I have created a form with 4 fields on it. I have read in other posts to add
the message control to the form. When I add the message control to the form
it is the size of the entire form. Am I supposed to put my fields inside the
message control? When I try and place my fields inside the message control
nothing is seen. They are underneath the message control. If you try and
send the message control backward using order they still do not appear on the
form. Does the message control just need to be somewhere small on the form.
Could someone explain this to me? All I want to do is be able to have the
form accept attachments.

Thanks for any help.

The message control needs to be somewhere on the form. The height of the box doesn't matter, but the width will affect the appearance of the attachment "well."

You cannot place other fields inside the message control as you can with a frame control.

Now that I have the message control on the form, how do I control the
background, foreground, font, etc... with this message control. Everything
is grayed out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

John

That's perfectly normal behavior in design mode. There are few options to set for that control.
