Topic: AJAX upload...

Does anyone know of a text writeup / step-by-step for implementing what sean treadway shows here? http://sean.treadway.info/demo/upload/

Unfortunately, I am at work, and don't want to be playing videos etc. while I'm here.

Or, if you know a different way to do the same thing, I would appreciate any and all help! I want to be able to upload multiple files associated with a foreign key pointing to another object onto a page, while providing some feedback to the user.

THanks for any and all help!

Well, uh, thanks for the reads so far folks.

Ummm, any other suggestions?

Re: AJAX upload...

Sorry man, but ajax uploads are notoriously complex, and I wouldn't recommend it unless you had to.  Infact, I'm not sure if XmlHttpRequest even supports multipart form data, so it would have to be some sort of hacked up frame solution.

To get a progress bar you have to configure your server especially for it.  It's certainly not plug and play.

Don't be suprised if there's no one to help on this one.

Re: AJAX upload...

Well, I've looked into it further, and apparently the upload_progress plugin does what I need. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to use it. Has anyone implemented this before?
