Need File Input Cloned From 1 Form Into Another?

May 17, 2009

I have an <input type="file" name="image" /> in an html form that get's submitted via method="POST". But I can't submit this normally, since this is all I want submitted, and there is already a <form> tag defined above the code and than below the code, closes the form with </form> that must remain there. Since, there is no way to have forms inside of forms, I am using Javascript to create a form and submit it on the fly. But I need to get a copy of the file input element defined in the document.forms.creator form.

I handle the action with a php file that calls $_FILES['image']['name'] and $_FILES['image']['tmp_name']. The problem is I need to create the form on the fly, must clone the <input type="file" name="image" /> so that it obtains the $_FILES['image']['name'] and $_FILES['image']['tmp_name'] and submits it all on the FLY! Here's what I got so far, coded in php, but you can see the Javascript in there as well. It submits it fine, but $_FILES['sigImg']['name'] and $_FILES['sigImg']['tmp_name'] are NOT SET for some reason...

echo '<tr><td colspan="2"><a href="#" name="sig' . $user_info['id'] . '"></a><center><b>Signature Image Rotator</b></center><br /><center>
Add Image: <input type="file" size="48" id="imagefile" name="image" />  <input type="button" value="Upload" onclick="createFormAndSubmit()"></center>';

[code]....

I have tested this in IE 8 and doesn't set $_FILES['sigImg']['name'] and $_FILES['sigImg']['tmp_name'] to anything. I don't want the value of the file input, since this will be different depending on the browser. And in IE 8, you'll need to have some settings enabled to be able to get the full path, otherwise will return "fakepath".

Changing Attributes Of Input Tag In Cloned Row?

Jun 24, 2010

I'm extending the number of rows of a table by cloning the last row (=newLastRow). Each row has a single input tag in it, with a name which includes the row number and an onclick function call which passes the row number to the function:<input type='text' class='clickable' name='inp8.1' size='20' value='xyx' onclick='toggle("table8");'>The new cloned row has an input tag with the same parameter value as the cloned one, obviously. I need to increment this: name='inp9.1', 'toggle("table9")'.y question is simple but I'm just starting with DOM: how do I refer to the input tag in the newLastRow so I can change these values?

JQuery :: Send A Input File From A HTML Form To A PHP File Using The Load?

Mar 20, 2010

I wanna send a file thru the JQuery.load, I want it to work exactly like the regular post without the JQuery. So I can check the $_FILES['file']['error'] in PHP and all its features like I do without using JQuery.

$("#load").load('gerenciar_itens.php',{/* This is where I wanna pass the file. */}, function(data){
alert(data);
});

JQuery :: Clone LI And Clear Cloned LI's Input Values?

Feb 12, 2010

I've been searching this forum, Google Groups, and Stack Overflow this morning but I haven't been able to quite find a simple way to clone a LI element (that contains form inputs with data,) and erase the newly created/cloned LI's form inputs.

The function I'm using at the moment looks like this:

$("a#add_template_item").click(function(){
$('#cs_' + ($('#sortable li').size()-1)).clone().removeAttr("id").attr('id','cs_' + $('#sortable li').size()).appendTo('#sortable');
});

(All that is doing in the code snippet is checking to see what ID to assign to the new cloned LI item...)

Has anyone been able to clear the input values of a newly-cloned item in jQuery?

This.parentNode - Access The Elements Of The Form Without Referring To Them By ID As The Whole Form Is Intended To Be Cloned

Feb 16, 2011

I've put together what I think is an illustration of my problem at [URL] Quite simply, I need to be able to access the elements of the form without referring to them by ID as the whole form is intended to be cloned. I intended to do this using parentNode and childNodes[] together with the 'this' keyword. My understanding of 'this' in this context is that it should refer to the HTML element calling the function, i.e. one of the radio button inputs. However this gives the error "Error: this.parentNode is undefined"

The File Input Goes Blank When Trying To Submit Form?

Dec 21, 2010

I have one document that resides in an iFrame, and it contains anywhere from 1 to 4 forms, depending. There is a dynamic content area that will display between zero and three forms, each named uniquely, associated with files that exist in a database. Regardless of the number of forms associated with a file, at the bottom of the document is one last form named NewDoc - this last form is used for uploading a new file into the database, or replacing a file.With one exception, this is working flawlessly.The user is supposed to choose a file for upload, use a SELECT input to say what document type it is, then click on the submit button.

What is actually happening, however, has me confuzzed. When the submit button is clicked the first time, the value of the input="file" element becomes blank and nothing happens. If a file is chosen, again, and the submit button clicked, it uploads with no problem and the database does what it's supposed to. But if I refresh the document and try, again, same thing - the file disappears from the form element and the form does not submit.First, the forms (all three, just in case):

Code:
<form name="updateDocs_1" id="updateDocs_1" method="post" style="margin:0px; padding:0px; border:0px;"
action="supplier_docs.cfm?vid=122" enctype="multipart/form-data">

Moving File Input To Different Form Doesn't Work In IE7

Mar 3, 2010

I have form inside iframe. I want to copy form to parent window after user entered data and then submit. Everything works fine, except with file input. It seems impossible to move file input(after user selected file) to different form in different document (only ie7). Here is javascript code im using inside iframe to move form elements:

Code:

var parentForm = parent.document.getElementById('editGallerieFormParent');
parentForm.ordering.value = form.ordering.value;
parentForm.catname1.value = form.catname1.value;
parentForm.description.value = form.description.value;

JQuery :: Form Validation Error Messages Not Showing / When Using File Input Plugin

Aug 8, 2011

I'm using the jQuery form validation plugin along with the fileinput plugin which hides the initial input area, but uses <divs> and some styling /javascript to show the file input field.The issue I am having, is that the 'this field is required' text that is meant to show on submission, doesn't come up for the file input field, nor some checkboxes that I have in a table. I am guessing that this is because the code is needing the label to be RIGHT next to the element (in this case the file input or the checkbox) in order for the validation message to show..Are there any work arounds that anyone knows of so that I can get the error message to show?Is there a way to show the error message for required fields when they have a div wrapping them or anything wrapping them?

How To Check The Input File Object File Size On Client Side?

Dec 20, 2004

I have a form with three Input File form objects in which the user can add image files. But I am worried about the problems these controls can lead, because to check the file size the server needs to receive the entire file, so serious problems may happen, for example:

1. Malicious user trying to collapse the website sending big files.

2. Users that have not seen the warning “Maximum size: 100 KB&#65533; for each image, and try to send three image files consisting in 1,5 MB each one. These users will have a bad experience waiting one hour or more to upload the images, and after that receive an alert saying “Oooops! Your image files are too big.&#65533; And also, web server will waste an important amount of resources. The same case with 100 users at the same time can be a nightmare!


I have been searching a way to check the file size on client side without having to force user to install anything, but I think that there isn’ t nothing to do with javascript. But I found an interesting PHP article that explains a way to do it with this server side language. The technique consists in:

“A hidden field (measured in bytes) that precede the file input field, and its value is the maximum filesize accepted. This is an advisory to the browser, PHP also checks it. This form element should always be used as it saves users the trouble of waiting for a big file being transferred only to find that it was too big and the transfer failed. Code:

JQuery :: Form Plugin File Upload Doesn't Attach File

Jun 6, 2011

I have a problem with the latest version of the jQuery Form Plugin (2.80). To be more precise, I guess I am doing something wrong, and with an older version (2.67) somehow it didn't matter.With the old version, the file was uploaded without problems. Now Firefox opens a new Tab on clicking the submit button and nothing is done. Chrome doesn't open a new tab, but also nothing happens. In Wireshark I can see that there is no file attached in the POST message with the older version, the file was sent.My first guess was that my file handling on the server side is erroneous - but on the other hand, when there is no file attached, what should I handle there?
