Hi,
I have a form which the user can upload images to a gallery (and it saves input to database plus creating thumbnails of the images), it is working ok on IE 5 & IE 6, but a client contacted me to say when they click the submit button nothing happens. They are running IE 7 on Vista.
I am using Pure ASP File Upload v.2
Any help would be greatly appreciated..:)

If nothing happens when the submit button is pressed then the issue is most likely either html or Javascript (clientside script).  ASP and that upload object are on the server so would not be the cause if the page is never even submitted.

Can you duplicate it in IE7?  Look for Javascript errors and let us know if there is one.  Otherwise please post html and javascript that is part of the page (e.g. form and fields html and script associated).

Let me know if you have a question.

Are you relying on Javascript, maybe the client has it disabled

Yeah, that is Javascript driven, turn javascript off on your browser, and I bet it will not work. Certainly likely that is what is happening to your client

Can you duplicate the issue?  Remove the code that calls the checkFileUpload() function in the onsubmit event.  Does that make it so the form submits?  Of course that won't work for good but it will help us narrow down the cause.

Have you reviewed that code?  The code you posted has duplicate functions and it seems Javascript.  Remove duplicates.  You should also have the html validated.  If there are validation errors then that will often interfere with script and can affect the page.

Let me know if you have questions about this.

Hi all,
Haven't yet had a chance to check in IE 7 Browser. Works great in IE 5 & IE 6, however, I have just noted that I have the same problem in FireFox, when I click submit on the form nothing happens, Javascript is turned on ok.
Perhaps it is unable to pickup the width and height of the image? Think I read about a similar bug in new browsers..still puzzled :(

Did you clean up the code?  If so please post the new code you are using.  Also, what image are you referring to?  If you don't understand what I meant about cleaning the code up (remember the duplicate script I mentioned above) then let me know I can clarify.

Make sure you look at Firefox's Error Console (Ctrl + Shift + J) to see if there are any Javascript errors.  Let me know if you have a question or need more info.

Finally found the walk-around:
IE7 USERS - SPECIAL NOTE
Due to the new scripting and security procedures utilized in IE7 ASP Gallery users with IE7 may encounter some issues uploading images. The fix for this is simply to add your site to the list of your local trusted sites in IE (http://www.yoursite.com).

It finally worked for me on IE 7
Thanks for all your help
