Database with recordset?

Database with recordset?

Hello,

I created an image upload for my web gallery so clients could upload images to my website and create their own album with the "Digital File Pro 2" by: WebAssist. So far, I have been able to use the software to create an image uploader that uploads to _detail and _thumb folders. My next step is to create the same image upload using recordset so I could retrieve images from the database to a detail page because soon after clients finishes their uploads they will be redirected to detail page so they could view their image on the detail page.

I have already created the recordset and image upload applied to the file field on the form and were able to use it to upload to _detail and _thumbs but unable to upload to database.

· How can I make this possible so I could upload to database?
· How can I set it up so I could retrieve images from the database to the detail pages?
· Does any one know how I could do this successfully?
I also like to set the date option in the database so I could add dates to my form in the design.
· How can I do this if you?

Please help me with the creation of image database and date-stamp database as well?

Thanks bunch.

Ody

to store the image name in your data base, you will need to use the Data Assist Insert record behavior from the Data Bridge extension:
data-bridge/


The Digital File pro support page has a tutorial for using Image Upload in your data assist insert pages:
digital-file-pro/

to insert the current date when a new record is submitted, set the default value of the date column to NOW in the mysql database

Hello,

I am not sure I want to buy any more software to succeed in my design quest. Reason I bought the one I bought is because Dreamweaver does not have all the functionality I needed to make my design complete. Is there any way to retrieve the image already uploaded in the database and show it on the detail page? I think you have another idea on how to do this with your “digital file pro 2”, you must have used it to design your own site. What way is that way?

I couldn't find the word "NOW" and I tried typing the very word in a column but it didn't work. Where exactly or which column exactly do I need to check for the word "NOW" or may be type in at the word "NOW"?

Thanks,

Ody

When a file is uploaded using Digital File Pro, the file name is stored in a variable that is created under the WA Uploaded Files (file field) binding group named Server File Name.


The drawback to the Insert and Update record behaviors that are built into Dreamweaver is that they can only use dynamic data from form elements. they cannot use the server file name variable that is created. This is why you will need to use data assist for inserting and updating the record, what you are trying to accomplish cannot be done with the native Dreamweaver insert and update behaviors.


for the date, if using a timestamp column type, you can use current_time for the default value:
data-type-defaults.html
