Digital File Pro with Data Assist

I have created a data assist updater page, and included a digital file pro image uploader. Works perfectly fine.

However, when client wants to only update information with data assist, and does not upload an image, the old image is deleted from the database field. The field name becomes blank.

Is this an expected behavior or something I have done wrong. I admit it is the first time I've merged these two extensions.

Thank you.

Hi

On the edit page, enter the upload behaviour.

On the second page on the behaviour 'wizard' there is a default file option. Click the lightening and set this to the field of the recordset that you are updating.

This then tells the behaviour to use the existing file name if no new file is uploaded.

Hope this helps.

Cheers
Ian

Excellent explanation Ian.

This is also covered in more detail in the "How to apply Digital File Pro to DataAssist Insert and Update pages" tutorial found in the how to section of the DataAssist support page:
