There is such a thing - it's the File Control object in the remote form.  You can trigger an upload by putting code that looks like this in a button:

Calculate irFileData as row(ilMIMEHeaders,'tvFileData')
Calculate $cinst.$objs.FileControl.$action as kJSFileActionUpload               ## this triggers the file upload

Look for the File Control object in the online docco - <>


You can't have everything; where would you put it?
