#15151 closed defect (fixed)

UploadFile.php not working on single file uploads

Reported by: adlerweb Owned by: Mike Wilcox
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.9
Component: DojoX Uploader Version: 1.7.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


When feeding UploadFile?.php from a source using "HTML single POST" (like "Inline Browse Button Form Post Test" from test_Uploader.html) the upload itself works but dojo does not recognize the successful completion (i guess onComplete() doesn't get fired). Firefox' error console shows "JSON.parse: unexpected character".

For reference here an UploadFile?.php-Output in case of the named "HTML single POST" (multiple="false") captured by HttpFox?:

<textarea style="width:600px; height:150px;">{"file":"..\/tests\/uploads\/test.jpg","name":"test.jpg","width":2272,"height":1704,"type":"jpg","size":2060485,"additionalParams":{"album":"Summer Vacation","year":"2011"}}</textarea>

This output is sent back on multi file uploads using "HTML5 multi file input" (multiple="true"):


As you can see the correctly working multi-upload does not return the JSON-Data inside a <textarea> - i guess the http-post-tree is missing a return-function like on other methods. If i add the following lines at line 290 (current git) it seems to work.

+ $data = $json->encode($htmldata);
+ trace($data);
+ print $data;
+ return $data;

Note: Other methods like rmFiles also got no return on success - i have not tested but i guess these are broken too. Is this whole <textarea>-JSON-Wrapping even applicaple with current dojo?

I have a similar problem, that seems to have developed within the past couple of months. As of last July, the following chunk of code was rendering just fine, but now I can't manage to get the onComplete event to fire, no matter what combination of plugins I require (HTML5, IFrame, Flash) as described in . We're on Dojo 1.7, and using the latest versions of Firefox and IE9. Perhaps something has changed recently in the browsers.

<div style="display:none" id="fileUploadDialog" data-dojo-type="dijit.Dialog" title="Add/Modify? collateral images">

<div id="dynamicUploadList"></div> <form method="post" action="/wle/EstimatorServlet" id="uploadForm" enctype="multipart/form-data">


<legend>Upload images</legend>

<input type="hidden" name="pgTitle" value="collateral"> <input type="hidden" id="IEIFrame" name="addTextArea" value="0"> <input class="browseButton" style="width:160px" name="uploader" multiple="true" type="file" data-dojo-type="dojox.form.Uploader" label="Select Image File(s)" id="uploader" oncomplete="this.reset();updateCollateralList();">

<input type="button" id="remBtn" label="Clear" data-dojo-type="dijit.form.Button" onclick='dijit.byId("uploader").reset()'> <input type="submit" label="Upload" data-dojo-type="dijit.form.Button" onclick= 'if (dojo.isIE) { dojo.byId("IEIFrame").value = 1; }'> <div id="files" dojotype="dojox.form.uploader.FileList?" uploaderid="uploader"></div>

One thing I found while testing this is that Uploader does not work perfectly with AMD. So this fails:


But this works:


adlerweb, I think that might help you. If you are getting a textarea, something is wrong, that's only for iframes.

jeff_l, your code seems to work. Please check the server is handling the request properly.

Test that you have the uploader plugin that you expect:

var u = dijit.byId('uploader');

mwilcox, thanks for looking into this. When I added your suggested diagnostic code, just after the closing </div> in my excerpt above, I saw the following error in the console: "u is undefined"

comment:4 Changed 9 years ago by Mike Wilcox

Oh, that might not have happened at the right time. Here is more fleshes out code:

function(dojo, Button, Uploader, FileList, uFlash, dr, parser){
	parser.parse(); /// <----------------- after this
	var u = dijit.byId('uploader');
	console.log(u.uploadType, u);

mwilcox, sorry for being such a dimwit, but my app doesn't have anyplace where it does an explicit parse(), so I'm not seeing an obviously correct place to insert the "var u" assignment.

How are you parsing your widgets? Are you using the old renderer with parseOnLoad=true in dojoConfig? You could put it on dojo.ready();

You also could just use a setTimeout since this is just for debugging.

comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by jeff_l

Yes, we're specifying parseOnLoad=true in dojoConfig. Following your suggestions, I messed around with dojo.ready() and setTimeout() but it's not cooperating, probably since I don't really know what I'm doing.

Before I burn out your patience -- Is there one very specific step I could take to try to debug this problem? And please don't worry about offending me by being explicit, spelling things out as you would to a nearly complete newbie at Dojo and JavaScript?. I've been doing industrial Java for a couple of decades, but am still getting the hang of this Web stuff.

We solved our problem. It turned out that we had neglected to include a unique session ID in our submitted <form> element. A couple of months ago we added multi-session support to our app, which involved tagging each new browser tab with a unique ID. When we added a hidden <input> with the sessionID, it solved the problem. mwilcox, thanks for your suggestions along the way.

I fixed the line of code that was append s[] to the filename to do it even if it is single file. This works, but may cause troubles backcompat with current workarounds.

Milestone: tbd1.9

(In [30328]) Fixes: #14768, #15151, #16293, #14914, #14811, #11885, #14075 converted Uploader to use AMD properly which required discarding the plugin approach. All functionality is now included in Uploader. plugins remain for backcompat in order to throw warnings.

Not happy with the solution of always adding "s[]". I can't configure the attribute name any more which breaks my app. I don't want to change my server to accept an array of files, it only supports single uploads.
