uploading a file via ajax with php#1
I would like to know if it is possible to upload a binary file via ajax and php, and have a link to download it. I would like to avoid refreshing the entire page, as with a standard html form. So far I have been using forms to get information, such as radio and text boxes, and using javascript to override the default behavior. Is a similar thing possible for uploading a file?

Re: uploading a file via ajax with php#3
It is not generally possible to do this in AJAX / Javascript alone.Take a look at:http://www.codeplex.com/SLFileUpload/for a way to do it inside a silverlight application.or:http://www.element-it.com/Examples/MultiPowUpload/SimpleUpload.htmlin flash.

Re: uploading a file via ajax with php#4
As John Gietzen said, you can(t do this directly through AJAX (ie send the actual data through AJAX). What you could do though, ispost your form to an invisible iframe, then use AJAX to ask the server for the URL. That would retain the basic user experience - not refreshing the page.

Have an IFrame (display:none) on your form and set your form(s target to be that iframe.My form looks like this:<iframe id="upload_target" name="upload_target" src="" style="width:0px;height:0px;border:0px solid #fff;"></iframe><form enctype="multipart/form-data" name="frmXMLUpload" target="upload_target" action="scripts/uploadXML.php" method="POST" onSubmit="return checkExtension(fXMLFile.value, (xml()"><!--only allow up to 30k of data to be uploaded--><input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="30000" /><input name="fXMLFile" id="fXMLFile" type="file" accept="text/xml" size="50" /><p><input type="submit" value="Upload" /></p></form>And deal with response in yuor IFRAME. basically this is not AJAX at all, but who would like JavaScript to have access to files on your local computer? It(s fine the way it is.

Re: uploading a file via ajax with php#6
Have you considered jquery? There are nice plugins to do this gracefully.Like this one for example: http://www.phpletter.com/Our-Projects/AjaxFileUpload/

Re: uploading a file via ajax with php#7
It isn(t possible to submit a file through Javascript.Your options are:The hidden iframe trick, popularized by Google. Implementing this yourself can result in some klunky stuff so there are libraries out there, such as jQuery, which have plugins, such as jQuery(s popular Form Plugin, that automate this so you don(t have to feel dirty inside when using it.Using Flash to faciliate the process. Most notably SWFUpload is very popular. All things being equal, I(d probably go with the Javascript solution over this, but I(ve used this in the past with success. The cool thing about this solution is that it comes with a nicer interface such as loading indicators and thumbnails and such. At this point, though, you(re asking for a user to have Flash + Javascript available, which may not work in some situations.Using Silverlight instead of Flash, although I wouldn(t really consider this as a viable solution, as it has a much lower penetration rate than the other two solutions.

Take a look at this example, I the plugin a little better than the one at phpLetter, though the phpLetter might have better examples for the PHP side of things.http://www.fyneworks.com/jquery/multiple-file-upload/#tab-Examples

Re: uploading a file via ajax with php#9
You might also want to have a look at SwfUploader , which does file uploads using Flash, showing a progress bar, and without needing for the page to be refresh. Demonstrations can be seen here.
