Hi all,

I am trying to get some dialogs in my project to replace the echo's.

Can someone please help me as I cannot get it to work.

Please see code below attached.

What I need to do it to replace the echo warning messages I have in the function with popup dialogs or alert dialogs.

for example ... code below has: echo 'This file is too big'; ... I was a dialog instead.

Thanks

Code attached below

<?php
class UploadsController extends AppController {
	
	var $name = 'Uploads';
	var $useTable = 'competitions_entry';
	var $components = array('RequestHandler','FileUpload','Session');  
	var $helpers = array('Html', 'Form', 'Javascript','Session', 'Ajax');
	var $uses = array('User','Competition','Upload', 'Vote');
	
		
	
	
		
	
	
	function index($id = null) {
		

		
		//$this->set('uploads', $this->Upload->find('all')); 
		$temp_id = $this->sodium_user['User']['id'];
		
		
		
		$theuploads = $this->Upload->query("SELECT * FROM entries where user_id <> $temp_id");
										   
		$this->set('uploads', $theuploads);
		
			
		if($this->RequestHandler->isPost()) {
		
		   
		
		$this->Upload->create();
		
			$component = new FileUploadComponent();
			$component->upload(array('name'=>'blablabla', 'tmp_name'=>'tmp_blabla'));
			$FullUrl = $component->getFullpath();
			$currentUserId = $this->sodium_user['User']['id'];
			$test = $component->getFolder();
			$ddd = $component->getDestination();
			
		
				
		
		   
			//Get the path to save;
			$data = array('Upload' => array(
					'competition_id' => $this->data['Upload']['comp_id'],
					'user_id' => $currentUserId,// <- Need to get this via url
			 		'directory_name'=> 'img/uploads/',
					'name' => $test.'-'.$this->data['Upload'][0]['file']['name'],
					'size' => $this->data['Upload'][0]['file']['size'], 
					'type' => $this->data['Upload'][0]['file']['type']
				)
			);

			echo 'Upload or file cannot be empty';
			
					
            
			
		} else {
			
	
		
		
		
		//**********************************************

		$accepted_file_types = array (

			echo '<br />';
			echo 'File type not allowed!';
			
		
		}

			if(!$this->FileUpload->upload($this->data['Upload'][0]['file'])) {
			$this->Upload->delete($this->Upload->id); // remove the DB entry because there were upload errors
			$this->redirect('/'); //Redirect after saving
		}
		}
		
		}}
		
		
		
		
		}

You can put the message(s) in a <div> with ID, say, dialog as:

        echo '<div id="dialog">This file is too big</div>';


Then in your <html><head> you can include the lines below. Make sure that the css and js files point to the appropriate locations.

<link type="text/css" href="../css/jquery-ui-1.8.6.custom.css" rel="stylesheet" />      
<script src="../JS/jquery.js"></script>
<script src="../JS/jquery-ui-1.8.5.custom.min.js"></script>
<SCRIPT>
	$(function() {
		$( "#dialog" ).dialog();
	});
</SCRIPT>
