    • $col_name: column name that stores file name

    • FORM edit mode only
    • File system only with valid upload_tmp_dir value in php.ini
    • Filename column should allow NULL value
    • $physical_path is automatically obtained if PHP running in Apache module, or MUST be provided as a fallback
    • When receiving alert message “unexpected token <“, it is your upload folder that doesn’t allow write permission. Please set the folder permission to be writable.
    • By default, only JPEG files are allowed for file upload, but one can change the upload file extension to include additional file formats in conf.php called ‘UPLOADEXT
  • Example:
// conf.php
define('UPLOADEXT', 'gif,png,jpg,jpeg');
$dg -> set_col_fileupload("fileToUpload", "/phpGridx/FileUploadFolder/", "c:\\xampp\www\\phpGridx\\FileUploadFolder\");

// if PHP is installed as Apache module, the 3rd parameter, $physical_path, can be ignored
$dg -&gt; set_col_fileupload("
fileToUpload", "/phpGridx/FileUploadFolder/");
