Want to upload file from a Flash Form.

How can I tell this code below to specify an ecode type of multipart/form-data? This is required to work with PHP script that i am using to upload files.

In HTML it is done by this:
<FORM METHOD="POST" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" ACTION="submitform.php">

There has got to be a way! Thank you!

I know about this component.

I even found one more by Impulse Digital but it uses ASP.

I will be using that, you can find it here: http://www.impulsedigital.com/idio/idio-v1/

I want to use this with PHP.

ssdesign, the component you mentioned only works in IE also - I guess that maybe isn't a problem for you.

I'll still look for a solution, and post it here if it's still open, but it looks like this is a tougher one to solve than I thought.

dutchfoxer: if you read my earlier comment dated,  Date: 09/01/2004 05:58AM PDT, I had asked this question in reference to Impulse Digital upload example.
Also the CFM example you showed also uses the same technique as Impulse Digital.

MUSO: I know about FLEX but this project uses MX2004 and I can not use FLEX for this.

Its been 4 days yesterday I was able to resolve it using PHP.

Okay; I'm glad you found your solution in any case :-)

For the record, I'm sorting out a solution that I can use now also (I prefer to do things myself, so I can understand how it works).
