Trigger Upload Upon Selecting Image?

Thread began 12/14/2012 10:59 am by jason363662 | Last modified 12/14/2012 11:39 am by Jason Byrnes | 476 views | 1 replies |


Trigger Upload Upon Selecting Image?

I have a form that includes an image upload (DFP). It works fine - the current trigger is the form submission so I am updating the database and uploading the image at the same time.

I have seen other sites where the image is instantly uploaded as soon as it is selected so that, in essence the image upload and form submission are separate actions. Is there any way to accomplish something similar with DFP?

I would like the image to upload as soon as local file is selected without any further action on user's part - and I would like to stay on the same page so that the form isn't impacted by the upload.

Thanks for any help!

This would require considerable hand coding to accomplish and is not supported.

the file field would need to be a separate form, and you would need to use ajax to submit the file form when a selection is made to perform the upload.
