Hi All,

I have a form that asks the user to enter some personal information and then the last field is to browse for an image to be uploaded.

I see many examples of uploading a file but it is the only field in the form in all these examples. How can I get the other form elements from my script at he same time? Do I have to put them in another PHP page?

Thanks

Hi knuckle05,

You can just put it in the same form.

After the submit you just have to check if a file was submitted.

Put something in it like:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
if($submit && $_FILES['file']) { // Is there a submit and a selected file

      $file_name = $_FILES['file']['name']; // This is the name of the uploaded file
      $file_temp = $_FILES['file']['tmp_name]'; // This is the temporary file

      // Now move the file to the wanted folder
      move_uploaded_file($file_temp,"yourfolder/$file_name");

}

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi dantuma,

Sorry for the delay.

So I can still get my other form elements using the $_GET['field1'] syntax?

yes you can.

Use $_FILES for the uploads and $_POST or $_GET for the other form elements.

By the way, important maybe. Your form should contain the following type:
ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data"

like in:

<FORM ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" ACTION="" METHOD="">

That way the form wil send data and files.
