How would I create a "attachment button" using Apex Code?

I would like to attach a document to an Calendar event. In order to do, I am assuming I have to create a new button.  What should I select for th content source? "Onclick javascript" or "visual page". Which is easier to accomplish? In addition I am not sure what the javascript would be in order to generate this button. Please help. 


You can do this in 2 ways using HTML button or Apex:commadbutton here you need to bind two property fileName and FileContent wth VF page.

<apex:inputFile value="{!test}" filename="{!fileName}" />

<apex:commandButton action="{!Uploadfile}" value="Upload File" id="theButton"  />


in controller you need to Keep these two properties : 




sushant sussushant sus

in page:


<apex:inputFile value="{!photo}"> </apex:inputFile>
                              <apex:commandButton value="Upload photo" action="{!uploadphoto}" />



 Attachment objA=new Attachment();
            objA.body = photo;
   = 'testname';
            insert objA;
