    Make sure to get this module on the download-page as well, there'll be a better chance of people noticing it then.

    Again, thanks for your work. I'll let you know if I bump into problems.

    Any chance you'll be integrating SWFUpload with this? That would change the world.

    Hi UncleCheese

    Why would you want to use SWFUpload for it? AFAIK SWFUpload doesn't work reliably on some machines (not sure about Flash Player for Linux either)?

    True, Flash isn't 100% compatible, but neither is Javascript. The goal would be to make it degrade gracefully. Maybe even have a config variable turn it on or off. When used right, SWFUpload is a very powerful, lightweight tool that can work with at least 95% of your audience, and as for the other 5%, it's great at graceful degradation.

    Think of the advantages of being able to:
    1) Interrogate file for size, mime-type, etc before it can be selected.
    2) Select multiple files at once
    3) Show upload progress

    That, to me, is the Mecca of a HasMany file manager. In the meantime, this looks great, and I'll definitely use it over the clunky CTFs I'm always using.

    I think he means SWFUpload is pretty buggy. SS removed it from the backend except for in the quick tiny_mce upload area. The reason being it borked on a lot of installations and different versions of Flash.

    This looks great though. I'll be sure to use it.

    WOW!

    That's a great job there!
    I've been looking for this a long time. I saw some other posts to it, but such a great solution is more then I expected.
    Your piece of work is great! Exactly what I was looking for.
    And your comments in the code are really helpfull.

    Have you ever tried it on the newest daily build?
    Doesn't work properly there... I guess it's something they've changed in the main declaration of the form fields. But I haven't investigated.
    More I wanted to ask if you're informed about this problem.

    Your module shows much more Formfield options, that make no sense at all.
    But still, there's no error message or something.
    It doesn't work, quietly.

    --> take a look at the screenshot-attached.

    Hopefully that information helps you a bit.
    For me I hope you keep up that good work so I can keep using your great module!

    Anyone else getting a database error saying that the File table does not have column FilePageID?

    Never mind. That was just a conflict when i upgraded to the second version. Banal, if you get a chance, I'd really like to know how you got the extra form fields in there. When I make a custom class such as MyImage extends AttachedFile, the HasManyFileManager yells at me saying my SourceClass must be AttachedFile or a subclass thereof.

    Anyone have any luck adding fields that are beyond Title and File?
