Topic: Adding 'Browse...' button to form???

I have a functioning pdf form that collects data from a web user and submits an fdf file containing the form data via email. I would now like an additional form field for the web user to provide the path of a file local to them which they would like to attach. I want to give them a "browse dialog" to provide this path. I know it can be done because I have a working one in the FDFToolKit for Windows samples which is called AttachFile.pdf. I have copied the text field and the browse button and set all properties and javascript the same but cannot get the box to come up which allows me to browse around my computer. The code uses a javascript method called browseForFileToSubmit. I can find very little doc on this except to see that the "FileSelect flag" on the text field should be set to true in order for this to work.'s grayed out...I can't set it to true. It's not set to true on the sample from adobe either. I've found some info indicating this flag can only be set certain ways but not enough info to tell me how to do it. I'm thoroughly confused. Can someone please help me?
