    Content:

    What are the widgets available to upload the file from the local directory in VBCS? I could not find the option in drag and drop widgets pallet.

    How to initiate the request of content-type multiform data from VBCS to OMC 19A, and send the file as form data parameter in the body of the request.

    Can we also use the drop-down widget in VBCS, and how to add the additional widgets which are available in OJET but they are not available in VBCS.

    Your suggestions would be a great help to me.

    The first part of creating a file picker is covered in this article:

    Your use case then differs that rather than reading the file locally in JavaScript you want to pass the same file object to a REST endpoint.  However, it would be the same file object that gets passed as the body of the POST request.
