Hi - hope you can help me on this one !

I am processing a form to upload an image
which contains:

<form name="main_fm" enctype ="multipart/form-data" action="aaa_process.php" method="POST">
<input type = 'hidden' name='run' value="on">
<input type="hidden" name ="MAX FILE SIZE" value="500000">
<input type = 'hidden' name='adref' value="<?php echo $A_ref ?>">

<div style='position:absolute; left:40px; top:320px' >
<input type="file" size="50" id = "u1" name="upLoad1"><br />
<input type="text" size="50" id = "n1" name="fName1" readonly>

<div style='position:absolute; left:500px; top:262px' >
<img height='160' width='160' id="image1" style='display:none' />

<div style='position:absolute; left:370px; top:280px' >
<input type="submit" value="Upload All Images"><br />
<input type="reset" value="Reset All Images" >


To help track down the problem, I have set

In the script I have included an


This is the output:

Array ( [upLoad1] => Array ( [name] => curlydog.jpg [type] => image/jpeg [tmp_name] => C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\php59.tmp [error] => 0 [size] => 22660 ) )

(Looks fine to me )

But I get this error: :(

Notice: Use of undefined constant name - assumed 'name' in D:\Web\DW\DWyodbod\aaa_process.php on line 20

line 20 reads:

$N_pix1 = strip_tags(trim($_FILES['upLoad1'][name]));

Does anyone know whats going wrong ?

Thanks :)

That is simply a notice warning you of an assumption php made. name is a constant. PHP needs to know it's a string, therefore put 's around your name.


$N_pix1 = strip_tags(trim($_FILES['upLoad1']['name']));
