Use of filereference attribute in DCF AttributeOptions

Has anyone used this outside of the internal usage?  I know it's used in the XUI DCF, wondering if anyone has used it outside of that context.

Looking to work up an element that points to graphic media objects stored on a cloud, wondering if setting the attribute for this URI up in the DCF will enable loading of the object into the Editor window?

Hi Jason--

Yes, I think the filereference configuration is what you want, assuming you'll be accessing the cloud graphics using some kind of URL scheme. Arbortext knows how to retrieve external files via URL.

You might need to do some customization of the UI, however. OOTB Arbortext assumes you want to insert a graphic reference to a local file, so the graphic prompt dialogs don't have a web option. You just need something that provides a way to select a graphic from your cloud repository and return a URL.
