The file input control is quite special, as it does not just has a
value of a filepath and name, but an array of values associated with
the choosen file. These are not retained when a form is shown again
due to input errors, or as in the case where a login is required.
After login other form data is passed on, but the values from the
file input is lost. I do not know if the eis a method which will
So I suggest you use conditional markup to
A) display a warning that the user needs to login first,
B) disable the form till logged in.
you can use for A above the form:
(:if !auth upload:)Please log in before filling in the form!(:if:)
for B inside the form:
(:if auth upload:)(:input submit post '$[Save]':) (:input submit cancel '$[Cancel]':)(:if:)
alternatively you could add a foxcheck:
(:foxcheck target if='auth upload' msg='Please log in!' :)
