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.

Cool, I'll have a look at the Impulse Digital one. I use php also, so I'll see what I can figure out for you...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.

I haven't had a chance to look at this yet, but it supports PHP:

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).
