Forms: How to select a file?

I am making an email client app. Part of it is "attachments" to the email.

I have a list of attachments.

How to allow the user to select files to include?

You cannot use "Prompt for import file" because that is not forms compatible.. 

I find you cannot use drag and drop because it doesn’t pass you the path of the dropped file.

Unless I don’t get how to do drag and drop on forms. I’m using pDragValue after they drop, on an On EvDrop.

I can’t figure out, how with forms, you can allow the user to select a file off their drive.

There must be a way.

Does anyone know it?
