Can't retrieve fileField value

Can't retrieve fileField value

When using the Upload Files webassist component, I'm wanting to get the value of the fileField to store in a database. It seems as though when you click on Browse and select the file that the form field get whiped out? I cannot retrieve it from $_POST['fileField'] - it's blank. Help!

the upload behavior creates a bind group for WA Uploaded File (File Field Name).

That binding group contains a variable named Server File Name, that binding should be used to retrieve the file name.

Here is my insert code. What would I use for DocumentName. Not sure how to extract the File Field Name from the bind group.

$insertSQL = sprintf("INSERT INTO Documents (ContractID, DocumentName, upload_date) VALUES (%s, %s, %s)",
GetSQLValueString($_POST['ContractID'], "int"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['DocumentName'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['upload_date'], "date"));

The problem is that you are using the standard DW Insert, use the Data Assist insert instead, this will allow you to access the bindings panel to use the server file name binding.
