multiple file upload each with custom parameters

#1 Postby giorrrgio » Aug 04, 2008 1:41 pm

Hi there,
I've an upload form with which users can upload a file, specyifing some custom fields.
Since I have to post all this data with ajax calls, I followed some hints on this forum and modified this way upload.cgi:

Code: Select all

print"<HTML><BODY><Script>";
for my $f (@files)
{
    print "window.top.window.updateUploadDiv('$f->{file_name}' , '$f->{file_name_orig}' , '$f->{file_size2}' , '$f->{file_size}' , '$f->{file_status}');";
}
print"</Script></BODY></HTML>";

Now my issues:
I'd like to pass all the custom fields to that javascript function, in addition to other file related data.
I saw something related to @har variable, but I'm not familiar with perl, so please help :-)
Second issue: if I want to make this form multiupload, how can I manage separate custom fields for each file I upload? (E.G. if user uploads 4 songs, I need him to specify title and genre for each song in separate fields). It seems that custom fields are treated without the possibility to do what i need.
I'm using the pro version.
Thanks

1) What file-related fields fo u need more?

2) I think this is pretty easy: in xupload.js clone this part of code:

Code: Select all

        if(enable_file_descr==1)
        {
            var new_row_descr = document.createElement( 'input' );
          new_row_descr.type = 'text';
            new_row_descr.name = element.name+'_descr';
            new_row_descr.className='fdescr';
            new_row_descr.setAttribute('maxlength', 128);
            var div2 = document.createElement( 'div' );
                div2.className = 'xdescr';
                div2.appendChild( document.createTextNode('Description:') );
            div2.appendChild( new_row_descr );
            new_row.appendChild( div2 );
        }

and replace there in new code '_descr' to e.g. '_title', 'Description:' to e.g. 'Title:'

Then in upload.cgi after

Code: Select all

   $fhash->{file_descr} = $cg->param("$k\_descr");

add

Code: Select all

   $fhash->{file_title} = $cg->param("$k\_title");

and after

Code: Select all

'$f->{file_status}'

add

Code: Select all

,'$f->{file_title}'

to send it back to your JS function

Hi,
your solution is good but I've found a problem with special characters.
My website uses utf-8 as charset and if put special characters in the title field the upload freezes at 100%.
Any idea?

Thanks

No idea actually. Try to disable email notifications first in config. Then check error_log, make hidden xupload iframe visible, probablt some errors there.


Return to “XUpload”
