I have a number of Users in a table and I want each to have their own upload folder, I do this in the HTML editor by uploading to a folder and then adding a further extension using the "User ID" from the database. Can I do this in the HTML5 Uploader?

Hello Keith,
Yes, you can have {{dynamic}} values in the path, when uploading files with HTML5 File Upload

Well, actually there is no a specific tutorial about this ... just use {{some_value}} in the path, when setting up your path ...

Hi Teodor - I am not with this, I assume "some_value" is the binding value that in my case the User ID but how do get that value into the file path? Can you explain further?

{{some_value}} could be ANY value returned any ANY step in your server action.
How exactly do you want to use this id? Where it comes from?

Hi Teodor

I want to use the user ID from a database table that is included in the upload form (I am also insert a record in a database as well, the form has the value in a hidden field that is then used in the Upload server Action. What I want to do is upload and image into a common folder and then direct it to a folder that is titled as the User ID (1, 2 , 3 ....)

Hope this makes sense

What exactly does this mean:

Quote database table that is included in the upload form

How do you include a database in an upload form?

I am not, I am using the form as part of the server connect upload. I need to direct the photo to a folder on the server, the folder on the server relates to the client user ID, I have multiple clients and their associated ID is what I want to use in the upload path, I need to get this from the user ID.

Not easy to explain but hope this helps

You just need a query, which filters your users and a repeat step after the query, which uses the query name as a value.
Then just put everything inside this repeat ... and the query bindings will be accessible form there ...

Hi Toedor - I am obviously missing something here, all works fine except picking up the user ID from the database source for the path in the repeat. I have set the output as the User ID from the selection that I assume is coming from the query but that is not included in the upload file path. I have images of my settings to see if that help pin point what I am doing wrong but cannot attach them anymore. I can send images to you if you can let me have an address if that will help.
