Getting StringIO in Mozilla and String in Safari for file up


#1

Hi Folks,

      When i try to upload files, its working in both Mozilla and

IE. But It’s not working in Safari. The reason is,mozilla has StringIO
class and safari has string class. My controller codings are based on
StringIO. So that its not working in safari(ie its failed to read the
file).I cant able to proceed further. Can any one help me.

Thanks in Advance

The body of a post will be a StringIO, TempFile or (if the form type
isn’t multipart) a String.
You just need to cope with those possibilities. Are you setting the
mime type of the post correctly ?

Thanks for your quick reply Fred.

I’m using following form tag

<% form_for :taxfile,:url=>{:controller=>'taxpayer', :action=> 'upload_taxfile'}, :html=>{ :multipart=>true} do%> <%=file_field :taxfile,:uploaded_data,:size=>"15" %>

I didn’t set any mime types in config files.

Thanks

Setting :multipart => true is all you should need to do. I think
you’ll just have to deal with whatever rails throws at you.
