    Display an upload button for uploading multiple files with progress counter. The upload queue could be filled and saved by Formit hooks.

    Features
    With this snippet an upload button for uploading multiple files with progress counter is generated. Works well in FF3.6+, Safari4+, Chrome and falls back to hidden iframe based upload in other browsers, providing good user experience everywhere.

    All uploaded images and generated thumbnails are given random filenames to avoid hotlinking uploaded not published fullsize images. Automatic thumbnail generation for uploaded jpeg, png and gif files. Other uploaded files will get a generic icon.

    With two Formit hooks the upload queue could be pre filled from Formit field value and saved into Formit field value.

    This Extra is a Snippet-/jQuery-Wrapper for Andrew Valums great file upload script.

    • Excellent!
      I'm going to test this.
      Does it have usegroup's permission?

      • The upload connector itself is not secured on user permission (this could be provided by changing the connector). Random filenames (for uploads and thumbs) during upload avoid hotlinking of uploaded files that are not moved to target after form submission.

        The only problem that could occur is posssible floading the server with uploaded files. Uploaded files stay in cache for 4 hours per default. Automatic purging will executed after each upload. The cache could be cleaned manually by calling AjaxUpload::clearCache(xxx) with other values in xxx.

          • I've included this in my template:
            [[!Formit?
            &preHooks=`Formit2AjaxUpload`
            &hooks=`AjaxUpload2Formit`
            &ajaxuploadFieldname=`image`
            &ajaxuploadTarget=`images/uploads/`
            &ajaxuploadUid=`image`
            ]]

            Plus
            [[!AjaxUpload?
            &uid=`image`
            &allowedExtensions=`jpg,jpeg,png,gif`
            &thumbX=`75`
            &thumbY=`75`
            ]]
            

            And the Formit form.

            The upload button appears and it starts to upload but then i get this alert: Could not save uploaded file. The upload was cancelled or a server error encountered.

            I've tried several small jpgs. The site's on a local MAMP server.

            What else do i have to do besides including these snippet calls and chmod the upload dir?
            • Hi kilg0retrout.
              As I could see, all files are uploading to sitename/assets/components/ajaxupload/cache/
              So you can look there to check uploading. Then,
              "ajaxuploadTarget — Target path for the (already) uploaded files (relative to $modx->getOption['assetsPath'])" http://rtfm.modx.com/extras/revo/ajaxupload

              &ajaxuploadTarget=`images/uploads/`

              It seems like in your case this path will be like sitename/assets/images/uploads/
              Check if this dir exists.
              To use sitename/images/uploads/ folder I used:
              &ajaxuploadTarget=`../images/uploads/`

                This error occurs somewhere in fileuploader.class.php during checking the size of uploaded stream (after an ajax upload) or during moving the uploaded file to the target (after a regular upload). Those two possibilities depends on the browser abilities (short version: IE does a regular upload without progress counter, others could do an ajax upload with progress counter). What browser do you use?

                Don't know whats going wrong there in your installation. Maybe a tmpfile() generation problem. Maybe you could see something in the PHP error log of that installation.


                • when I view the page nothing shows...
                  however when I view the source of the page it shows this
                  <div id="file-uploader-image">
                  <div class="file-uploader-items">

                  </div>
                  <div class="file-uploader-buttons">
                  <noscript>
                  <input type="file" name="image" />
                  </noscript>
                  </div>
                  </div>
                  any ideas?
                  [[update]]
                  i had to use the
                  &addJquery=`No`
                  &addJscript=`Yes`
                  &addCss=`Yes`
                  in the sniippet properties to make this work? why would I have to?

                  additionally, still don't understand how to get them out of the cache and into the ajaxuploadtarget
                  does anyone have an example of this? [ed. note: d1ckyh last edited this post 5 years, 1 month ago.]

                      only js error I see now is SyntaxError: Using //@ to indicate source map URL pragmas is deprecated. Use //# instead which is coming from jquery.min.js
