file upload and file name insert not working

file upload and file name insert not working

I'm trying to upload a file and insert the filename into the database. The file upload is not working, and the insert isn't working either. All of my other fields insert, but the filename is empty everytime.

html field is:

<input value="<?php echo($smallgroup_info->getColumnVal("picture")); ?>" type="file" id="Picture" name="Picture" style="float:left;"/><?php echo($smallgroup_info->getColumnVal("picture")); ?>

File upload code is:


// WA_UploadResult1 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params = array();
// WA_UploadResult1_1 Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params["WA_UploadResult1_1"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "images/",
'FileName' => "".((isset($_FILES["Picture"]))?$_FILES["Picture"]["name"]:"")  ."",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "0",
'ResizeWidth' => "0",
'ResizeHeight' => "0",
'ResizeFillColor' => "" );
// WA_UploadResult1_1 End
// WA_UploadResult1 Params End

Insert code is:

$InsertQuery->bindColumn("picture", "s", "".$WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["clientFileName"]  ."", "WA_DEFAULT");

You can't pre-fill a file upload field, so that code won't do anything.

I'd use the "serverFileName" and not the "clientFileName" in the bindColumn (if the file already exists it will be renamed).

The only other thing I can think of that would prevent it from working would be if you didn't have enctype="multipart/form-data" in your form tag.

Thanks Ray! I think I was doing all of those things incorrectly, and a couple of others as well. HA! par for the course with me though. You guys are great.
