Form Validation working incorrectly

Form Validation working incorrectly

I am trying to validate 2 fields.

The first is a text area that I want to be required.
The validation works correctly.

The second is a file field that I want to validate for file size and also for type of file.
If I try to upload a wrong file type the validation works (see image 1)
but if I try to upload a file that is too large, both error messages show up (image 2).

I have spent hours trying to get this to work, I even reinstalled CSS Form Builder.

Can anyone see if there are code errors in my page, please. I have attend the file.

to help troubleshoot, find the following code:

php:
if ($WAFV_Errors != "")  {

    PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"newsItemsInsert_879");
  }


and change it to:

php:
if ($WAFV_Errors != "")  {

    die(var_dump($_FILES));
    PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"newsItemsInsert_879");
  }




then try uploading the to large file again, when validation fails, it will give a blank screen with the contents of the files array, post back the files array contents.

Files Array

Hi Jason,

This is the info in the resulting window:

array(1) { ["newsImage"]=> array(5) { ["name"]=> string(17) "CasaLosCielos.png" ["type"]=> string(9) "image/png" ["tmp_name"]=> string(36) "/Applications/MAMP/tmp/php/phpk3APek" ["error"]=> int(0) ["size"]=> int(10003321) } }

By the way, I sent the wrong page on my previous post. Attached is the correct page.

May have found the solution

I did a test over the weekend using my home laptop.
I use Macs. At work I use Dreamweaver CS5 but my laptop is still on CS4.

When I tried to replicate the problems I was getting the same result until I removed the Web Assist Validation folder, then let CS4 add the files back by clicking the WA Server Validations from the server behaviors.

I then changed:

$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateFE(((isset($_FILES["newsImage"]))? preg_replace('/^.*\./', '', $_FILES["newsImage"]["name"]) :"") . "",".gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png",false,3);

to:
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateFE(((isset($_FILES["newsImage"]))?$_FILES["newsImage"]["name"]:"") . "",".gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png",false,3);

And the validation worked perfectly.

So, I just did the same on my work computer and everything is now fine. Maybe the files in the Validation folder got corrupted.

this code is the code for the file extension binding:
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateFE(((isset($_FILES["newsImage"]))? preg_replace('/^.*\./', '', $_FILES["newsImage"]["name"]) :"") . "",".gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png",false,3);

this code is for the file name (including extension) binding.
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateFE(((isset($_FILES["newsImage"]))?$_FILES["newsImage"]["name"]:"") . "",".gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png",false,3);



the file extensions validation expects to be passed the full file name (the second code example).
