Usage

Uploader form

To upload files you should do a few simple steps:

Append urlpattern (r'^your_uploads/', include('multiuploader.urls')) to your urlpatterns. Create MultiUploadForm() in your views and set it to context

Example:

from django.shortcuts import render_to_response
from multiuploader.forms import MultiUploadForm

def my_view(request):
    context = {
        'uploadForm':MultiUploadForm()
    }
    return render_to_response(your_template, context=context)

Append to your form, where you want upload files MultiuploaderField:

Example:

# Your forms.py

from multiuploader.forms import MultiuploaderField
class PostMessageForm(forms.Form):
    text = forms.CharField(label=u'Question', widget=forms.Textarea)
    uploadedFiles = MultiuploaderField(required=False)

Then you should render this field in your template:

{% load multiuploader %}

<form method="POST" action="" enctype="multipart/form-data">
{% csrf_token %}
<p>
    {{ form.text }}
    {{ form.text.errors }}
    {{ form.uploadedFiles }} {{ form.uploadedFiles.errors }}
</p>
<p>
    {% multiuploader_noscript form.uploadedFiles.html_name %}

    <input id="send" type="submit" value="Send" class="button">
    <a id="showUpload" type="button" class="button"><i class="attachment"></i>Attach files</a>
</p>
</form>

{% multiuploader_form form_type="default" template="multiuploader/form.html" target_form_fieldname=forms.edit.uploadedFiles.html_name js_prefix="jQuery" send_button_selector="input[name=_edit]" wrapper_element_id="fileUploads" lock_while_uploading=True number_files_attached=forms.attached_count %}

In this example

{% multiuploader_noscript form.uploadedFiles.html_name %} template tag loads code which shown only for browsers with javascript turned to off.

  • form.uploadedFiles.html_name - argument to template tag defines an element name.

{% multiuploader_form form_type="default" template="multiuploader/form.html" target_form_fieldname=forms.edit.uploadedFiles.html_name js_prefix="jQuery" send_button_selector="input[name=_edit]" wrapper_element_id="fileUploads" lock_while_uploading=True number_files_attached=forms.attached_count %} template tag loads code which does all needed logic.

  • form_type - type of form with predefined settings, defined in your settings.py in MULTIUPLOADER_FORMS_SETTINGS dictionary
  • template - template for multiuploader
  • target_form_fieldname - html field name of MultiuploaderField in our case it's a name of uploadedFiles
  • js_prefix - the jQuery prefix (useful when you want to create multiuploader in admin panel). This parameter is optional
  • send_button_selector - jQuery selector for field we should lock, while file uploading
  • wrapper_element_id - the name of id (form container) in which you want to create form. Useful for styling. This parameter is optional
  • lock_while_uploading is a boolean variable which controlls whether multiuploader should lock submit while uploading or not. This parameter is optional

These parameters may used as positional too.

Templates

  • multiuploader/form.html - MultiUploadForm template, you can change look'n'feel here.
  • multiuploader/noscript.html - template for noscript case.
