javascript - with - upload file using ajax php




jQuery Ajax File Upload (14)

Can I use the following jQuery code to perform file upload using post method of an Ajax request ?

$.ajax({
    type: "POST",
    timeout: 50000,
    url: url,
    data: dataString,
    success: function (data) {
        alert('success');
        return false;
    }
});

If it is possible, do I need to fill "data" part? Is it the correct way? I only post the file to the server side.

I have been Googling around, but what I found was a plugin while in my plan I do not want to use it. At least for the moment.


Ajax post and upload file is possible. I'm using jQuery $.ajax function to load my files. I tried to use the XHR object but could not get results on the server side with PHP.

var formData = new FormData();
formData.append('file', $('#file')[0].files[0]);

$.ajax({
       url : 'upload.php',
       type : 'POST',
       data : formData,
       processData: false,  // tell jQuery not to process the data
       contentType: false,  // tell jQuery not to set contentType
       success : function(data) {
           console.log(data);
           alert(data);
       }
});

As you can see, you must create a FormData object, empty or from (serialized? - $('#yourForm').serialize()) existing form, and then attach the input file.

Here is more information: - How to upload a file using jQuery.ajax and FormData - Uploading files via jQuery, object FormData is provided and no file name, GET request

For the PHP process you can use something like this:

//print_r($_FILES);
$fileName = $_FILES['file']['name'];
$fileType = $_FILES['file']['type'];
$fileError = $_FILES['file']['error'];
$fileContent = file_get_contents($_FILES['file']['tmp_name']);

if($fileError == UPLOAD_ERR_OK){
   //Processes your file here
}else{
   switch($fileError){
     case UPLOAD_ERR_INI_SIZE:   
          $message = 'Error al intentar subir un archivo que excede el tamaño permitido.';
          break;
     case UPLOAD_ERR_FORM_SIZE:  
          $message = 'Error al intentar subir un archivo que excede el tamaño permitido.';
          break;
     case UPLOAD_ERR_PARTIAL:    
          $message = 'Error: no terminó la acción de subir el archivo.';
          break;
     case UPLOAD_ERR_NO_FILE:    
          $message = 'Error: ningún archivo fue subido.';
          break;
     case UPLOAD_ERR_NO_TMP_DIR: 
          $message = 'Error: servidor no configurado para carga de archivos.';
          break;
     case UPLOAD_ERR_CANT_WRITE: 
          $message= 'Error: posible falla al grabar el archivo.';
          break;
     case  UPLOAD_ERR_EXTENSION: 
          $message = 'Error: carga de archivo no completada.';
          break;
     default: $message = 'Error: carga de archivo no completada.';
              break;
    }
      echo json_encode(array(
               'error' => true,
               'message' => $message
            ));
}

An AJAX upload is indeed possible with XMLHttpRequest(). No iframes necessary. Upload progress can be shown.

For details see: Answer https://.com/a/4943774/873282 to question jQuery Upload Progress and AJAX file upload.


I have handled these in a simple code. You can download a working demo from here

For your case, these very possible. I will take you step by step how you can upload a file to the server using AJAX jquery.

First let's us create an HTML file to add the following form file element as shown below.

<form action="" id="formContent" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" >
         <input  type="file" name="file"  required id="upload">
         <button class="submitI" >Upload Image</button> 
</form>

Secondly create a jquery.js file and add the following code to handle our file submission to the server

    $("#formContent").submit(function(e){
        e.preventDefault();

    var formdata = new FormData(this);

        $.ajax({
            url: "ajax_upload_image.php",
            type: "POST",
            data: formdata,
            mimeTypes:"multipart/form-data",
            contentType: false,
            cache: false,
            processData: false,
            success: function(){
                alert("file successfully submitted");
            },error: function(){
                alert("okey");
            }
         });
      });
    });

I have implemented a multiple file select with instant preview and upload after removing unwanted files from preview via ajax.

If you want to upload file using AJAX here is code which you can use for file uploading.

$(document).ready(function() {
    var options = { 
                beforeSubmit:  showRequest,
        success:       showResponse,
        dataType: 'json' 
        }; 
    $('body').delegate('#image','change', function(){
        $('#upload').ajaxForm(options).submit();        
    }); 
});     
function showRequest(formData, jqForm, options) { 
    $("#validation-errors").hide().empty();
    $("#output").css('display','none');
    return true; 
} 
function showResponse(response, statusText, xhr, $form)  { 
    if(response.success == false)
    {
        var arr = response.errors;
        $.each(arr, function(index, value)
        {
            if (value.length != 0)
            {
                $("#validation-errors").append('<div class="alert alert-error"><strong>'+ value +'</strong><div>');
            }
        });
        $("#validation-errors").show();
    } else {
         $("#output").html("<img src='"+response.file+"' />");
         $("#output").css('display','block');
    }
}

Here is the HTML for Upload the file

<form class="form-horizontal" id="upload" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="upload/image'" autocomplete="off">
    <input type="file" name="image" id="image" /> 
</form>

Iframes is no longer needed for uploading files through ajax. I've recently done it by myself. Check out these pages:

Using HTML5 file uploads with AJAX and jQuery

http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/FileAPI/#FileReader-interface

Updated the answer and cleaned it up. Use the getSize function to check size or use getType function to check types. Added progressbar html and css code.

var Upload = function (file) {
    this.file = file;
};

Upload.prototype.getType = function() {
    return this.file.type;
};
Upload.prototype.getSize = function() {
    return this.file.size;
};
Upload.prototype.getName = function() {
    return this.file.name;
};
Upload.prototype.doUpload = function () {
    var that = this;
    var formData = new FormData();

    // add assoc key values, this will be posts values
    formData.append("file", this.file, this.getName());
    formData.append("upload_file", true);

    $.ajax({
        type: "POST",
        url: "script",
        xhr: function () {
            var myXhr = $.ajaxSettings.xhr();
            if (myXhr.upload) {
                myXhr.upload.addEventListener('progress', that.progressHandling, false);
            }
            return myXhr;
        },
        success: function (data) {
            // your callback here
        },
        error: function (error) {
            // handle error
        },
        async: true,
        data: formData,
        cache: false,
        contentType: false,
        processData: false,
        timeout: 60000
    });
};

Upload.prototype.progressHandling = function (event) {
    var percent = 0;
    var position = event.loaded || event.position;
    var total = event.total;
    var progress_bar_id = "#progress-wrp";
    if (event.lengthComputable) {
        percent = Math.ceil(position / total * 100);
    }
    // update progressbars classes so it fits your code
    $(progress_bar_id + " .progress-bar").css("width", +percent + "%");
    $(progress_bar_id + " .status").text(percent + "%");
};

How to use the Upload class

//Change id to your id
$("#ingredient_file").on("change", function (e) {
    var file = $(this)[0].files[0];
    var upload = new Upload(file);

    // maby check size or type here with upload.getSize() and upload.getType()

    // execute upload
    upload.doUpload();
});

Progressbar html code

<div id="progress-wrp">
    <div class="progress-bar"></div>
    <div class="status">0%</div>
</div>

Progressbar css code

#progress-wrp {
  border: 1px solid #0099CC;
  padding: 1px;
  position: relative;
  height: 30px;
  border-radius: 3px;
  margin: 10px;
  text-align: left;
  background: #fff;
  box-shadow: inset 1px 3px 6px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.12);
}

#progress-wrp .progress-bar {
  height: 100%;
  border-radius: 3px;
  background-color: #f39ac7;
  width: 0;
  box-shadow: inset 1px 1px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.11);
}

#progress-wrp .status {
  top: 3px;
  left: 50%;
  position: absolute;
  display: inline-block;
  color: #000000;
}

Simple Upload Form

 <script>
   //form Submit
   $("form").submit(function(evt){	 
      evt.preventDefault();
      var formData = new FormData($(this)[0]);
   $.ajax({
       url: 'fileUpload',
       type: 'POST',
       data: formData,
       async: false,
       cache: false,
       contentType: false,
       enctype: 'multipart/form-data',
       processData: false,
       success: function (response) {
         alert(response);
       }
   });
   return false;
 });
</script>
<!--Upload Form-->
<form>
  <table>
    <tr>
      <td colspan="2">File Upload</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <th>Select File </th>
      <td><input id="csv" name="csv" type="file" /></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td colspan="2">
        <input type="submit" value="submit"/> 
      </td>
    </tr>
  </table>
</form>

To get all your form inputs, including the type="file" you need to use FormData object. you will be able to see the formData content in the debugger -> network ->Headers after you will submit the form.

var url = "YOUR_URL";

var form = $('#YOUR_FORM_ID')[0];
var formData = new FormData(form);


$.ajax(url, {
    method: 'post',
    processData: false,
    contentType: false,
    data: formData
}).done(function(data){
    if (data.success){ 
        alert("Files uploaded");
    } else {
        alert("Error while uploading the files");
    }
}).fail(function(data){
    console.log(data);
    alert("Error while uploading the files");
});

Yes you can, just use javascript to get the file, making sure you read the file as a data URL. Parse out the stuff before base64 to actually get the base 64 encoded data and then if you are using php or really any back end language you can decode the base 64 data and save into a file like shown below

Javascript:
var reader = new FileReader();
reader.onloadend = function ()
{
  dataToBeSent = reader.result.split("base64,")[1];
  $.post(url, {data:dataToBeSent});
}
reader.readAsDataURL(this.files[0]);


PHP:
    file_put_contents('my.pdf', base64_decode($_POST["data"]));

Of course you will probably want to do some validation like checking which file type you are dealing with and stuff like that but this is the idea.


You can use method ajaxSubmit as follow :) when you select a file that need upload to server, form be submit to server :)

$(document).ready(function () {
    var options = {
    target: '#output',   // target element(s) to be updated with server response
    timeout: 30000,
    error: function (jqXHR, textStatus) {
            $('#output').html('have any error');
            return false;
        }
    },
    success: afterSuccess,  // post-submit callback
    resetForm: true
            // reset the form after successful submit
};

$('#idOfInputFile').on('change', function () {
    $('#idOfForm').ajaxSubmit(options);
    // always return false to prevent standard browser submit and page navigation
    return false;
});
});

to upload a file which is submitted by user as a part of form using jquery please follow the below code :

var formData = new FormData();
formData.append("userfile", fileInputElement.files[0]);

Then send the form data object to server.

We can also append a File or Blob directly to the FormData object.

data.append("myfile", myBlob, "filename.txt");

$("#submit_car").click( function() {
  var formData = new FormData($('#car_cost_form')[0]);
$.ajax({
       url: 'car_costs.php',
       data: formData,
       async: false,
       contentType: false,
       processData: false,
       cache: false,
       type: 'POST',
       success: function(data)
       {
       },
     })    return false;    
});

edit: Note contentype and process data You can simply use this to upload files via Ajax...... submit input cannot be outside form element :)


var dataform = new FormData($("#myform")[0]);
//console.log(dataform);
$.ajax({
    url: 'url',
    type: 'POST',
    data: dataform,
    async: false,
    success: function(res) {
        response data;
