user manual file object

Postby johan » Tue Mar 20, 2018 7:17 pm

Hi

Does anyone have a manual on how I have to upload a file, view this file in the editform and download it from the database?
If I upload now, I see the file only in zzzzsys_file, not in the table of my form.

Check out this post https://forums.nubuilder.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=9377#p16323

This will show you the code used in nuBuilder to save and view files under the "Files" button. You can use this code (slightly modified of course) in your form's custom JavaScript. This should get you going in the right direction.

What type of files do you want to upload? I just want to draw your attention to the fact that nuBuilder's file object is not suitable for uploading large files to the database.

My files are pdf or odt.
Is there an other solution to attach files to a form?

Johan,

You would be best using a third party product like DropBox.

In the near future, we will provide some tips on how to in a video.

Do you already have some tips for this issue?
How can I upload / download files to my own server using NuBuilder?

Johan,

Use Ajax & PHP as suggested here:
