Delete from results page

I need to be able to delete the associated file when I delete the database info. I have an older page that I created that does this but it was done before the latest updates. I've attached the file. All the required files, permissions, folders are set correctly it just doesn't work when I use the wizard to create the delete file feature.

1) move the DeleteFileName hidden element so that it is just before the WADADeleteRecordID hidden element

<input name="DeleteFileName" type="hidden" id="DeleteFileName" value="<?php echo $row_WADAfolder_downloads['folderdownloadFile']; ?>">

<input type="hidden" name="WADADeleteRecordID" id="WADADeleteRecordID" value="<?php echo($row_WADAfolder_downloads["folderdownloadID"]); ?>" />

2) Edit the onclick event of the delete button

<input type="button" class="formButton ResultsPageButton unstyled DeleteButton" value="" onclick="document.getElementById('WADADeleteRecordID').value=<?php echo($row_WADAfolder_downloads['folderdownloadID']); ?>;document.getElementById('deleteBox').style.display = 'block';document.getElementById('deleteMessage').style.display = 'table';" />

to set the DeleteFileName hidden element

<input type="button" class="formButton ResultsPageButton unstyled DeleteButton" value="" onclick="document.getElementById('WADADeleteRecordID').value=<?php echo($row_WADAfolder_downloads['folderdownloadID']); ?>;document.getElementById('DeleteFileName').value='<?php echo($row_WADAfolder_downloads['folderdownloadFile']); ?>';document.getElementById('deleteBox').style.display = 'block';document.getElementById('deleteMessage').style.display = 'table';" />

3) Move the code for the delete file behavor from lines 150 - 155:


$_POST["Delete"]))?$_POST["Delete"]:"") != "")){
$WA_DeleteFileResult1 WA_FileAssist_DeleteFile("../folderuploads/""".((isset($_POST["DeleteFileName"]))?$_POST["DeleteFileName"]:"")  ."");

to line 120 so it occurs before the delete record.
