Dropbox paper doesn't show up in pop-up window to get all files, using API call

Dropbox paper doesn't show up in pop-up window to get all files, using API call

Files from Dropbox-paper gets displayed in account home page.

But, when using "Dropbox.createChooseButton()" API call, only the dropbox files gets displayed and not the dropbox-paper files.

Since, the website home page lists out the entire list including papers,
the above mentioned method must display that too. 

Is there any other call for getting the list of paper files ?
else how to upgrade the above API call ?

The Dropbox Chooser unfortunately does not provide access to Paper documents, but I'll pass this along as a feature request.

If you need programmatic access to Paper documents, you'll need to use the Dropbox API instead:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#paper

That's a link to the documentation for the HTTPS endpoints themselves, but we recommend using one of the official SDKs if possible:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation

Those have corresponding native methods for the HTTPS endpoints.

For accessing the Dropbox API from JavaScript, we recommend using the official Dropbox API v2 JavaScript SDK:

https://github.com/dropbox/dropbox-sdk-js

That contains functionality for the Paper endpoints, documented here:

Thanks for the reply,

I'm currently using the API call to list out the paper files.

As you said, it would be very useful, if the paper files had been added to the dropbox files as a new feature.
And moreover, I couldn't get any SDK for paper, when using javascript.

Could you please help me out with this ?

Thanks in advance
