file upload problem in DataAssist / UE4

file upload problem in DataAssist / UE4

If I add UE4 / file upload functionality in an insert page following this (excellent) documentation: dfp_da_insert_update_ht.pdf

it still does not work sometimes, due to a missing attribute in the <form> tag. I have to add enctype="multipart/form-data" manually, so that its something like:
<form action="news_Insert.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="WADAInsertForm" id="WADAInsertForm">

Does UE4 not check this attribute? I use DataAssist 2.0.8 (maybe THE BEST WA Extension)

any idea?

if you manually add a file attribute to the form, the forms encoding type will need to be set manaully.


if you use the Dreamweaver Insert -> Form -> File Field method to add the file field to your form, the encoding type will be set automatically

thanks, but ...

Hi, thanks for the reply, but I did not do anything "manually".

The files were generated by DataAssist's Wizard. I had to add the "file upload" functionality later, because the wizard does not suggest such an option.

I added them to the insert and update pages according to WA's documentation (see my last post). As an example for the update page it showed:

<form action="news_Update.php?id=<?php echo(rawurlencode($row_WADAaktuell['id'])); ?>" method="post" name="WADAUpdateForm" id="WADAUpdateForm">

where it should have been:

<form action="news_Update.php?id=<?php echo(rawurlencode($row_WADAaktuell['id'])); ?>" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="WADAUpdateForm" id="WADAUpdateForm">

I hope, I could express better what the problem is.

the data assist wizard does not have an option to add File Fields to the page.

how did you add the file fields to the page?
