Open File Picker

This node opens a file picker dialog. Noodl uses the system file picker dialog, meaning it works seamlessly with the users native device experience.

You can define what file types are allowed to be uploaded. This is done by entering a string of file types: each item needs to start with a period (.) and be separated by a comma (,). Leave the list blank if you want to accept any file type.
