File Queue

Posted on 2013-11-18

Im trying to make my own uploadify, and getting quite far. My only todo task left is being able to add to the queue.

Currently I have:-
<input type="file" name="upfile_0" id="upfile_0" multiple="multiple" />

Open in new window

Which works great, however if the user tries to select another file it clear the old selection.

Is there anyway to add to the queue (and even better being able to remove from the queue)?

Does anyone have any ideas on where to go from here?

Thank you

I think an idea would be to add multiple <input type="file" /> elements, one per file, even if they are added in groups.
For that you just have to use the "files" property of the input and in javascript loop through all of them generating a <input type="file" /> for each one.
