Server Behavior Update does not save to mysqli if multiple type='file' exist

Server Behavior Update does not save to mysqli if multiple type='file' exist


I have 2 form Text Field type='file'. When I update either, the one that isn't selected over writes the contents of the field in the db. Should it not ignore the $_POST like other elements on the form?

Using $_FILE to save the file name to the db doesn't work. so I went with $_POST and removed [name] in the bindColumn as this is the only way I could save the file name to the db.

I've hacked (hunt and pecked at random solutions) and I can't get it to ignore the type='file' that is not being modified.

See attached.

Try using WA_IGNORE instead of WA_DEFAULT for those columns.
