DataAssist Update / File Pro overwrite file names

DataAssist Update / File Pro overwrite file names

I am following the tutorial on integrating file pro with data assist insert and update and am running into a issue.

The update page works fine as far as uploading files and recording their name to the database. When I go back to update a record and do not choose a file from my file upload field it clears out the file name entry for that record in the database.

I followed the instructions where I pick a default file name but it still is not working? I found a post where you key the enter key before clicking okay and that did populate the Default file name like this: 'DefaultFileName' => "".((isset($_POST["logo_image"]))?$_POST["logo_image"]:"") ."",

I tried to select the update form element I made hidden as well as the recordset element with now luck.

Attached is the page I am working with.

Thanks in advance!

this could be answered in another thread, but in order for the DataAssist update not to erase the image from the record, make sure to set a default file in the Upload server behavior. In your example you had something like this:

'DefaultFileName' => "",

but it should be:

'DefaultFileName' => "".$row_WADAmap_Advertisers['logo_image'] ."",

Let me know if you still have any other questions.
