Multiple Forms on a single page

Hi,
I cannot seem to get the Table Multiple Form action to work with a multipart/form-data encoding (to upload a file). The form seems to submit ok, but won’t accept the upload. If I test the validity of my code etc on a single page form it works, just moving it to this action stops it working.

Does anyone know if this is a known problem or if there is another way of doing this?

Thanks,

jr

How are you setting the multipart bit? Is there a field in your copy
of the Action to add this? I recall hacking a version that had this,
but I’m not sure if it made it into distribution. If you are setting
this property in the form setup dialog, realize that it is being
stripped out by the Action.

What handler system are you using to “catch” the files? There are
some wrinkles there, depending on the precise technique you are using.

Hi Walt,

The action is Table Multiple Form 1.10. There is a field called Encoding which I enter “multipart/form-data”.

I would use the action Multiple Form 2.0, but this doesn’t have an encoding field, though there are hidden fields you can add.

To be honest I find these actions hit and miss and can never figure out how to get multiple forms to work consistently. I don’t like having to enclose the form in a table so I really need a reliable way of adding multiple forms to my page. Can I add tags to an HTML item which contains my form fields and submit button?

Hi John,

There is a No Forms Action that comes bundled with Multiple Forms.
This is used to remove the default form tag from the page that
appears as soon as you place a form item on there. You can then add
your own form/forms anywhere you like using markup if you wish.

I hope this helps.

Forgot to add that I have used the No Forms item on the page too. I just cannot get the multipart/form-data encoding to work on the form section I want.

The encoding field is not the same as the enctype. Take a look at the
output of this form, and make sure that the result looks like this:

<form action="something" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

I believe that encoding would be to set the character set for the
form, like UTF-8 or windows-latin or something like that.

Walt, I tried this in a markup item and guess what - it worked! Great!

I wish there was an multi form action that would include the enctype option, so that the form could be easily laidout in Freeway, but for now I"ll have to jiggle it a little with markup.

Thanks again!

Hi John,

All you need to do is ask :slight_smile:

I’ll get that added as soon as I can.

What I meant is that if you (or anyone) has any suggestions then
please feel free to post them. If you don’t ask you might not get,
although we do try! =)
