When clicked it will bring the File System of the underlining OS.

Remote Query Block 4.01
Remote Query Block is used to pass the file handle to the Cloud Collection endpoint.

As usual, to write in a Cloud Collection you need to pass the api_key as a parameter.

To write Text:
- Set the value of the Text fields using the values[Cloud Collection Column Name] syntax.
- Fill the Value field with the text to save in the Cloud Collection
Also see 'Write in a Cloud Collection'

To write a file:
- Set the value of the Text fields using the values[Cloud Collection Column Name] syntax.
- Use the Selector for that file.
 IMPORTANT: You MUST turn that File Selector block into a Custom Block. 


In that example from the Tutorial App the File Selector is set with the File Selector Block used to select the file. That File Selector as been set as a Custom Block.

Any type of files are supported. It is important to ensure that the column in which they are stored in the Cloud Collection match the respective file types (image, audio, video).
