File Upload Problem

I have a page with the file upload as the following:

<form action="UploadC onfirm.psp" method="post"
enctype="multip art/form-data">
<input type="file" name="UploadFil e"><br><br>
<a href="javascrip t:document.form s[0].submit();">sub mit</a><br><br>

after submit, I'd like to retrieve the file name, and I have written
something like this:

import sys
import os

if form.has_key('U ploadFile'):
TheFile = form['UploadFile']
filename = TheFile.filenam e

TheFile = 'No file was uploaded, im empty'
filename = ''


when I tested it, I got an error after submitting a file, and the
error message was:
AttributeError: 'StringField' object has no attribute 'filename'

Can anyone tell me what cause the problem and how I can fix it?
Thanks a lot.

I have an upload file input as: <input id="MyFile" style="width:300px" type="File" runat="Server"> This works fine, but I find that if my page doesn't pass validation during postback, the page comes back with all the data intact, except for the upload object. The text box for "MyFile" (my example) is always cleared. Why is that and is there a way to stop that from happening? Thanks,

Howdy I've got a rather strange issue occuring. I used forms based .NET authentication, although I'm also setting some session variables when people login. However, I've found when people use one of my webform pages which includes a button that pops up a window where you can upload files, if you upload files in this popup window, it seems to somehow clear out all of the session variables and the users get logged out. However, if...

I have a VB ASP.Net application where the user can upload a file using the FileUpload server control. I also want a thumbnail to be created for this file. Unfortunately I can see no means to determine when the file upload is complete so that I can use the MakeThumbnail function as part of the code. My current workaround is to supply an addition button the users can click on when they think the upload is done that will find the uploaded...

Hello, I am trying to do a FTP file upload which works fine on my localhost but on my ISP server it fails. I can't seem to find where I can go to find the specific cause of the failure. In both cases the file is being transmitted to the same FTP server and using the same PHP script so it shouldn't be a file size or login credentials problem. Could someone please help me out and give me some ideas what is wrong. I would really...
