HTML5 File Upload Manual Support

Next generation file upload

The HTML5 File Upload offers advanced file upload through Ajax, multiple file upload, storing file info and client side image preview. It also allows you to upload single or multiple files.

To make sure you can use the extension in the best way possible, we made it fully compatible with the DMXzone Database Connector PHP/ASP and DMXzone Database Updater PHP/ASP. Thanks to this compatibility you can store your file names, type and size directly in your database.

To top it all off, the HTML5 File Upload now comes with a fantastic integration within the DMXzone Server Connect. And you can even create your own fancy progress bars.

The following masks are available to choose from: {name} filename without extension, {ext} file extension, {_n} generates a _1 number and counting until the file is unique and {guid} generates a unique GUID.

File conflict handling

Determine how a file should be handled if its name conflicts with the name of an existing file in the directory. Overwrite existing files - If you enable this options, existing files with the same name will be overwritten. Create path option - Using this option, the HTML5 File Upload will create an upload folder if it doesn't exist on your server. Throw errors - Display an error message if there's a problem with the upload.
