    Default Other Control File Upload/Download

    Hello, could anyone explain or show me a link to how data binding works on this "File Upload/Download" control in particular? i have tried a few out but have been unsuccessful on getting it to work. or is there someplace that explains how this control works?

    Specifically I need to know how to setup the table field to (such as character, image location, numerical, etc.) Should i use a memo (only one i can see it say "stored internally as either character or binary (blob) data") field?

    i'm going to guess either this is too bad of a question to answer XD or not many people know what i'm talking about XD

    Anyone have any idea on how this control should work?

    I think you need to be more clear.

    Are you uploading and downloading images to a table, or to another folder? With any reference in the table?

    What back-end database are you using?

    And I have no idea what XD is here -- if you think no one knows then maybe you should explain what you're doing a little better?

    Well i was trying to find more information on the controller itself. All other controls i have been able to find some reference as to how they work, but this one no such luck; possibly i'm just not looking in the right places.

    I was also wondering what type of field it would be bound to.

    DBF database, trying to get this control (along with a button to upload/download) to upload to a folder on the server, but i have noticed it copies on to the session folder but nothing after that, it does not move it into any type of folder i select, i have tried a reference and a full path folder.

    I think the issue might be on the web security settings, but i am unable to edit this on the server unless i'm running the database on the server itself. i will try that later on see if that helps.

    As for your last sentence it looks like there is a misunderstanding, XD is somewhat like , used purely as an emoticon. sorry for the miscommunication.


    Clarifications:
    Uploading files - No images, files such as PDF or Excel, to a folder on the server.
    DBF Database Structure
    The field type I am using is a Character, this is also where i think i'm wrong. But I am assuming this is not the same as uploading a picture (jpeg or png field)
    The field would be the reference, unless i am mistaken i do not believe an uploaded file would need 2 fields on a table.

    Whenever this control is bound to a field i get this error: "Error:Script:A5W Code line:110 Property not found tmpl.page_fields[] subelement not found."

    Sorry if some of the things i say do not make sense, a lot of lingo is program specific (such as a table in a word document compared to a table in Alpha Five)

    Hello Edgar,

    Were you able to resolve the "Error:Script:A5W Code line:110 Property not found tmpl.page_fields[] subelement not found." issue?
    I have exactly the same problem.

    Thank.

    Sadly no, I'm still looking for information on how to bind the upload/download control. it seems to have an error with any type of field i bind it to.

    Will post my findings ^.^
