I use a great class for file uploads. http://phpclasses.ranchoweb.com/browse/package/1708.html It does all the work for you, including renaming the file for securitty and has an example of how to use it., Nan -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Roel Mulder Sent: Wednesday, October 28, 2009 8:56 AM To: The List Subject: [thelist] Local path of uploaded file Hi all, So I have a form that uploads a file, along with some text fields. PHP validates the form, and returns the visitor to the form if not all criteria are met. The upload form is then empty. My question is: how do I keep the local path + file name in the <input type="file" /> input field? Google points me back in time to 2003: http://forums.devshed.com/php-development-5/getting-the-remote-file-path-fro m-input-type-file-56068.html where it should be provided by js. However, when I test it, it only returns the original file name (same as $_FILES['userfile']['name'] ). Actually FF returns the file name "test-file.pdf" only, IE returns "C:\fakepath\test-file.pdf" whilst the file came from a network share. Does anyone have a suggestion, or provide a hyperlink to a working example?
