DFP appending an extra .jpg to file name

DFP appending an extra .jpg to file name

I've run into this twice now and cannot figure it out.
On my update page, I have 2 DFP behaviours set to upload an image and name it to the value of an existing field.
the file uploads fine, but instead of taking the existing field name "5.jpg" it is renaming it to '5.jpg.jpg'

Here is the code:
<?php
// WA_UploadResult1 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params = array();
// WA_UploadResult1_1 Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params["WA_UploadResult1_1"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "../db_images/",
'FileName' => "".((isset($_POST["ProdImage"]))?$_POST["ProdImage"]:"") ."",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "1",
'ResizeWidth' => "200",
'ResizeHeight' => "300",
'ResizeFillColor' => "#FFFFFF" );
// WA_UploadResult1_1 End
// WA_UploadResult1 Params End?>
<?php
// WA_UploadResult2 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult2_Params = array();
// WA_UploadResult2_1 Start
$WA_UploadResult2_Params["WA_UploadResult2_1"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "../db_images/",
'FileName' => "".((isset($_POST["Ingredients"]))?$_POST["Ingredients"]:"") ."",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "1",
'ResizeWidth' => "200",
'ResizeHeight' => "300",
'ResizeFillColor' => "#FFFFFF" );
// WA_UploadResult2_1 End
// WA_UploadResult2 Params End
?>
<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult1");
if(isset($_POST["Update_x"])){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult1", "newimage", "0", "", "true", $WA_UploadResult1_Params);
}
?>
<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult2");
if(isset($_POST["Update_x"])){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult2", "NewIngredients", "0", "", "true", $WA_UploadResult2_Params);
}
?>

It looks like you are using DFP version 1 and allowing the user to type in the file name in a separate field? Is that accurate? Because it adds the extension according to the file uploaded, they can't specify an extension in the file name typed in since it might not match the uploaded file.... that is probably why it is getting added to the end.

No, I am using the latest extension, DFP 2.01

I am setting the name of the file to the name in the existing db field ProdImage.
My upload field is NewImage.

This file upload is on a product update page.
As I'm updating the record, I'm uploading the file.

The name of the file has to match the name specified in the db.

OK, there seem to be some problems then and I still have some questions:

I'll stick to the first upload. The second I assume is similar.


'FileName' => "".((isset($_POST["ProdImage"]))?$_POST["ProdImage"]:"") ."",
'DefaultFileName' => "",

What is the field in your form "ProdImage" what was entered into that form when you go the result you explained previously?

A second issue is DefaultFileName. You will want to set that to the recordset column you are updating so that the default will be set to the current value if no new file is specified.

I've stripped out the second upload behavior to simplify, but yes, they both give the same problem.

ProdImage is the field name used on the original Insert page (created with DataAssist)

On the upload page (created with DataAssist) I have a ProdImage field, set to show the value entered in the db as the initial value and beside it, I have a File Field, named newimage.

The record update behaviour is set to update the record to the value in the ProdImage field

The file upload behaviour, triggered on Update Record, is set to name the file to the value in the ProdImage field.

The user does have the option to manually change the value in the ProdImage field and it does rename the uploaded file, but it adds the extra extension.

As far as I can tell, the only place I have deviated from the Help document is that I did not HIDE the ProdImage field. This is because if the original product was added without an image, the value of the ProdImage field will be blank and I cannot upload a file with no name.



<?php
// WA_UploadResult1 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params = array();
// WA_UploadResult1_1 Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params["WA_UploadResult1_1"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "../db_images/",
'FileName' => "".((isset($_POST["ProdImage"]))?$_POST["ProdImage"]:"") ."",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "1",
'ResizeWidth' => "200",
'ResizeHeight' => "300",
'ResizeFillColor' => "#FFFFFF" );
// WA_UploadResult1_1 End
// WA_UploadResult1 Params End?>
?>
<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult1") ;
if(isset($_POST["Update_x"])){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult1", "newimage", "0", "", "true", $WA_UploadResult1_Params);
}
?>

Try using:

'FileName' => "[FileName]",
'DefaultFileName' => "".((isset($_POST["ProdImage"]))?$_POST["ProdImage"]:"") ."",

It sounds like a mistake in the tutorial if you are following it properly. I'll have someone look over the tutorial and make sure it is correct or that this step is clear.
