    File Upload Error Validation Issue with IE8

    Asked by shadi on December 23, 2013 at 05:23 AM

    i really like this tool to build forms. it's quite nice :)

    there is a small problem with the file upload part

    i added file upload and i assigned the allowed file size and allowed extensions

    when there is something invalid in a form an error message shows under the field

    i tested the code in preview mode by using google chrome. i uploaded an invalid file. it caught it and an error message appeared under the field

    i then downloaded the source code on my laptop and tested it in chrome and firefox. all went well and whenever something is wrong an error message appears under the field

    i then tested it in internet explorer 8. i uploaded an invalid file. it didnt catch it and the action in the form executed and it called your server. your server caught it and said invalid file. press back to fix

    i want to make a submit cv form and save it as .php . in the action in the form i want to call that same page if all is valid and run the php part in the page. i want the invalid file to get caught when i am running internet explorer before the action is called

    is there a solution?

    Hi,

    That's probably a compatibility issue. You can fix that by following this guide: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-PH/internet-explorer/use-compatibility-view#ie=ie-8. This is a manual process to whoever use your form.

    If you want to do it automatically, you can do so by adding meta data for IE Compatibility to your page. Here's a good solution:

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks
