Submit ColdFusion form with data and input type=file

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have a html coldfusion data entry form in a coldbox framework and using jQuery instead of javascript. I submit the form with many input fields along with an input type=file. The form tag  has  enctype="multipart/form-data" method=”post”. The form will not submit.
No errors come up when I click submit (but the jQuery does run), it just will not submit the form or go into the cffunction. When I remove the type=file from the form and the enctype="multipart/form-data" from the form tag, the form submits.
Is there a plugin in for coldbox that I am missing or is there a jQuery function that I need to add?
Thank you very much
