First Time Uploading - need examples

First Time Uploading - need examples

All I want to do is to have a form that will have a name I want to assign to a file, and a button to click to locate the file to be uploaded and renamed.

I need to have the flv extension attached.

I have looked at the built-in help, but nothing uploads.

I need a tutorial or sample code.


Thank you.

First, you need to create your form.

Go to Insert -> Form -> Form to add the form tag.

Go to Insert -> Form -> Text Field to add a text box. set the name of the text box to "FileName" (without the quotes)

Go to Insert -> Form -> File Field to add the file field. Set the name to "selectedFile" (no quotes again)

Go to Insert -> Form -> Button to insert the submit button.

Once the forn is created, add the upload file server behavior. Go to Insert -> WebAssist -> File Manipulation -> Upload.

Set the trigger to any form post.

Select the selectedFile file field.

On the second page, click the lightning bolt next to file name and select the FileName form field.

when filling out the form, type the name of the file in the file name form field, do not include the extension.

The extension will depend on the file that is uploaded, if the uploaded file is a jpg, the extension will be jpg, if it is an flv, the extension will be flv.

Thanks for the instructions, but...

I did all that, but nothing ever is uploaded. I look in the destination folder, but it's still empty.

Here's my code:



<?php require_once("webassist/file_manipulation/helperphp.php"); ?>
<?php
// WA_UploadResult1 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params = array();
// WA_UploadResult1_1 Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params["WA_UploadResult1_1"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "video/",
'FileName' => "".((isset($_POST["FileName"]))?$_POST["FileName"]:"") ."",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "0",
'ResizeWidth' => "0",
'ResizeHeight' => "0",
'ResizeFillColor' => "" );
// WA_UploadResult1_1 End
// WA_UploadResult1 Params End
?>
<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult1");
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult1", "selectedFile", "0", "", "false", $WA_UploadResult1_Params);
}
?>

for a file to upload, the forms encoding type must be set to multipart/form-data.
change the form tag:
<form action="videoupload.php" method="post" name="Video_upload" target="_self">

to:
<form action="videoupload.php" method="post" name="Video_upload" target="_self" enctype="multipart/form-data" >
