    Manual Upload - So I can upload file and save fields

    Hi,
     
    I am using UploadAttachments
     
    I need to be able to do a manual upload as I want the user to select a file and enter various other bits of information. Then when the user selects the submit button I want the file and fields to be submitted so that I can save the file to the file system and the fields to a database.
     
    I have tried ManualStartUpload = False
     
    and that stops the auto uploading, but how do I actually start the upload once the user clicks the page save button.
     
    The manual upload demo seems to do something like what I need but I cannot see the source code that makes that work.
     
    None of the demos show the source code necessary to get the demonstrated behaviour.
     
    Many thanks
    Derek

    Hi derekml,
     
    You can find all source code of the demo in the php uploader demo package.
     
    Demo package download url: http://www.cutesoft.net/downloads/folders/52443/download.aspx 
     
    I also attached the manual start upload example code below. 
    1. <?php require_once "phpuploader/include_phpuploader.php" ?>  
    2. <?php session_start(); ?>
