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 $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");
