Uploading a file with form_remote_tag problem


#1

params[uploaded_file] is not recognised when i try form_remote_tag like
this:

<%= form_remote_tag :url=>{:action => “save_file”} ,:html=>{:multipart
=> true} <%=text_field_tag “name”%>


<%= end_form_tag %>

It works when i do a normal submit like so:

<%= form_tag( {:action => ‘save_file’}, :multipart => true) %>
%>
<%=text_field_tag “name”%>


<%= end_form_tag %>

Any ideas what is wrong?

Thanks in advance
Chris

You can’t upload a file through AJAX. It has to do with the fact that JS
can’t access file upload fields directly.
