multipart / file field

Post Posted: Tue Dec 15, 2009 3:02 am

do you plan to support multipart forms to enable file uploads?
I'd possibly be a test user for this. (still validating the idea to go with your module though)

Re: multipart / file field

I'm of mixed feelings about including direct support for uploading in the Form module. I understand how useful it would be, and it may deter some from using it, however in my general experience, posting a form at the same time as uploading a file can cause some technological challenges on both the client and server side of things. One concern of note I've been informed of by a server-side counterpart at my work (and this may not be across the board accurate) is that if a post is submitted with an empty value for an upload field, it causes an error on the server. Again that could be incorrect but it is what I have been told.

Personally in my application development I find separating uploads and form data posts, if done properly, is a more elegant experience. But I am totally willing to work with you on finding an implementation that works if there is a consensus that this module is incomplete without uploading.
