Subject AW: AW: Multi-select file chooser
Date Mon, 28 Feb 2005 23:33:19 GMT
another solution would be to use (signed) java applets, which is (for the
enduser) the best looking solution, but the effort to do so is REALLY BIG,
so if you don't get paid like mad forget it....

Betreff: Re: AW: Multi-select file chooser

You can have as many <file> elements in a form as you want, and you can
process them all at once.  My web host (LunarPages) has a decent file
manager, one of the functions it has is the ability to upload up to 12 files
at a time.

I don't know of any single tag to render such a form, but that's really what
you need, and it should be trivial to write (although I'd bet it exists
somewhere).  It's the server-side processing that *could* be tricky
(although I think Commons Upload would deal with it just fine, probably give
you a collection or something, I forget what the interface looks like.)
