Get the file size

Hi,

I need help.

I need to assign the list to the variable.


//I upload the file first
 <cfloop from="1" to="#variables.maxFiles#" index="ii">
     
      <cftry>
            <cfif StructKeyExists(form,"AttachFile" & ii) && len(trim(Form["AttachFile" & ii]))>
             <CFFILE ACTION="UPLOAD"
                        FILEFIELD="AttachFile#ii#"
                        DESTINATION="#variables.filelocation#"
                        NAMECONFLICT="makeunique">
     
             <cfset Attachments=ListAppend(variables.Attachments,cffile.serverfile)>
             
//here I get the size of the file in the list
             <cfset GetFileSize=ListAppend(variables.GetFileSize,cffile.filesize)>

            </cfif>

//here I want to assign them into variable so I can insert the value into the database

			<cfloop list="#variables.GetFileSize#" index="fg" delimiters=","> 
				<cfset variables["filesize" & fg] = #fg#>
			</cfloop>

      </cfloop>

Right after where you have your set attachments code
<cfset Attachments=ListAppend(variables.Attachments,cffile.serverfile)>
Add this:
<cfset variables["fileSize" & ii] = cffile.filesize>

Then to insert to DB for correct file you probably have something like this:
<cfset cnt=0>
<cfloop list="#variables.Attachments#" index="ii">
      <cfset cnt++/>
So then right here you have your file: #ii#
and here is the corresponding size: #variables["fileSize" & cnt]#

good luck ...

Not sure the benefit of moving the values into variables, why not just  upload and insert inside the loop?
like this..

 <cfloop from="1" to="#variables.maxFiles#" index="ii">
     
      <cftry>
            <cfif StructKeyExists(form,"AttachFile" & ii) && len(trim(Form["AttachFile" & ii]))>
             <CFFILE ACTION="UPLOAD"
                        FILEFIELD="AttachFile#ii#"
                        DESTINATION="#variables.filelocation#"
                        NAMECONFLICT="makeunique">
     
			 <cfquery name="insertFile" datasource="#request.datasource#">
		         insert into myFiles (serverName, fileSize, ...)
				 values ('#cffile.serverfile#', #val(cffile.filesize)#
		     </cfquery>

            </cfif>
        <cfcatch type="Any">
		    Failed to upload file
		</cfcatch>
	</cftry>
</cfloop>

the main drawback is that you are connecting / disconnecting to the DB on each iteration of the loop.
even if in this case it may be that there is not enough traffic to cause a load problem - still ...

I think it's misleading to say you're "connecting" to the database each time as the database connection stays open, but, yes you are accessing the database multiple times.  However, based on the time length of a typical cfquery statement, you could conceivably run 50 cfquery statements on a page all within a fraction of a second.   I would not be concerned with 3-5 insert statements.
