Ajax file upload question

I have the file upload working, I have to place it outside my main
form.

Is there a way so I can have somewhere other than outside my form?

This below is all after the submit button:

<%= render :partial => '/rsl/sitelist', :locals => { :files => @files } %>
<% form_for :file, :url => file_upload_path(:format => 'js'), :html => { :multipart => true, :target => 'upload_file' } do %> File:  <%= file_field_tag :upload %>  <%= hidden_field_tag 'rfi', @rfi.id %> <%= submit_tag 'Upload File' %>  <% end %>

anyone?

why do you need it outside the main form? is the main form also going
to be there on that page?
you might want to check out form_tag
http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionView/Helpers/FormTagHelper.html#M001729

good luck!

Can you be more descriptive?
If the file is related to the model who’s form is on the page, then the
file
can and should be a part of the form for that model.

If the file is unrelated to the model who’s form is in the page and/or
you
want to include a separate form for the file upload, then you can use
something like

<% form_tag :file, :url => file_upload_path(:format => ‘js’), :html =>
{ :multipart => true, :target => ‘upload_file’ } do %>
File: 
<%= file_field_tag :upload %> 
<%= hidden_field_tag ‘rfi’, @rfi.id %>
<%= submit_tag ‘UploadFile’ %> 
<% end %>

… which is just the code u pasted with form_tag instead of form_for.
you
should read the API to understand the difference.

Well the file upload was not working because it is a form inside a form.

I do know the difference but when I move the code into the main form it
tries to submit the whole form.

You can use either form_for or form_tag for the file. In either case,
the
main form should close before you start the one for the file.
Whats the problem?

Well all file uploads from what I have seen are within the main form not
below the submit button. I guess I will just use a modal box to do the
uploads.

I have a Paperclip file upload going inside my model’s form, but not
in a form for itself.
I was approaching this as a form issue. Anyway, you should try
Paperclip if it seems like it might help you. Its really extremely
easy file uploads.
