triggering uploader


#1

Hi,
I am using a dhtmlxform with combo and uploader items.
I would like that once a combo option is selected the uploader is triggered and opens inmediatly the box to choose the file (like if the arrow button was clicked).
Is there any way of doing this?
Thanks in advance

You can use getUploader api to get the uploader object

docs.dhtmlx.com/api__dhtmlxform … oader.html

and after that use

form.getUploader(name).f.click();

Which will open the file selection dialog

Hi,
This solution worked fined to me until I put the uploader inside a fieldset, now it doesn’t trigger…
Is there a way of making it work?
Thanks
