Simpel problem, butt can't make it work (Coldfusion)

Hi there,

When a user not provide a picture, i want to give the file field a default name like nopicture.jpg, so that we will not see a blank image placeholder butt a neat pic that tells us that no picture was provided.

I allready tried in acces give default values but the filefield seems to overwrite these settings with (if the field by the user is left blank) a blank record, so no picture is shown.

Well, it seems to be a simple problem, butt it's always and you just have to know, that makes it difficult sometimes huh...

Thanks in advance

Best regards,

Well, if the user is submitting a form with an image file in it, I'd use PHP to do this:

// 'imagefile' is the form attribute name of the uploaded image
if (strlen($_FILES['imagefile']['name']) > 0) {
  // give the filename a unique name using a timestamp
  $filename = "($time_stamp)".$_FILES['imagefile']['name'];
  // copy the file from the tmp directory to your home directory
  copy ($_FILES['imagefile']['tmp_name'], "/full/path/to/dir/".$filename);
} else {
  // if no filename, name it default.jpg
  $filename = "default.jpg";

// now we insert the data into the database here
.....  $filename  ......
