Hi Tim,

I have used file upload with version 0.93 of Seaside. I don't know if=20
is still valid. Julian please correct me if I am wrong.
I hope I will soon be able to try version 0.94 or version 2 when it will=20=

officialy released.

To use file upload, you need to make a component:

IAComponent subclass: #AFiUploadFilePage
	instanceVariableNames: 'uploadFile '
	classVariableNames: ''
	poolDictionaries: ''
	category: ''

	^ '<form action=3D"@upload" enctype=3D"multipart/form-data">
		<input type=3D"file" name=3D"@uploadFile" size=3D"80"><br>=

		<input type=3D"submit" value=3D"Send file">

	"Here do what you want with:
	uploadFile fileName
	uploadFile contents"

The bad things is that the fileName returned is fully dependant of the=20=

and the plateform used: different kind of path separators, sometime full=20=

sometime only the filename. Ahhhhh the joy of web development ;-)

To get a correct fileName, I used the following (the most current path=20=

	(uploadFile fileName findTokens: '/\:') last
which should work on more current cases.

Have a nice day.
