Hi Mohammed,

You just have to link your char field with your binary field to show file name. Just add an attribute filename="your_char_field_name" in binary field.

Like this:

    <field name="file_upload" filename="file_name"/>

Hope this will solve your problem.

Thanks Sudhir. It really helped me a lot and worked. +1 for this.
