The uploaded files will be attached to the sent email.

Example Setting max attribute field to 3 and min to 2 with this validation rulse "required|max:3000|mimes:pdf,png" the widget will accept only pdf and png file with a max size of 3 megabyte, the user will be capable to upload a maximum of three file but at least two file will have to be loaded.


Fields can be excluded from the rendered form by uncheck "Visible" switch in the field, an icon in field list indicate the visibility of the field.


You can add required attribute to the fields by check "Required" switch in the field, this add a required HTML attribute to the rendered tag field, an icon in field list indicate the Require attribute state of the field.
