Once again, thanks UncleCheese for your contribution to SS. I really love this module! Okay, the problem-

Upon submission of a form that has an SWFuploadfield object, the page freezes after the user clicks on the submit button when there is no file uploaded.

In other words, if the user doesn't upload a file (I dont want to require it) the form doesnt submit.

In swfupload debug mode I get this message:

"StartUpload(): No files found in the queue."

And then it doesnt run the handleswfupload function at all. Any idea what is wrong?

Hmm... yeah.. sounds like a bug. I don't think I've encountered a use case where the field wasn't required. I'll take a look.

Any news? or does anyone have a quick fix?

Try updating your SVN. I've issued a patch that should work, but I haven't tested it.

Hmm I get an error:
"TypeError: this.getStats is not a function".

It does that regardless of whether I upload a file or not.

My code, for reference:

   new SWFUploadField("resumeForm","Resume","Upload Resume",
         array (
         'file_types_list' => '*.pdf',
         'file_queue_limit' => '1',
         'browse_button_text' => 'Choose PDF...',
         'upload_url' => $this->Link("handleswfupload/$ID"),
         'button_image_url' => '/swfupload/images/upload_button.png',
         'button_height' => '24',
         'button_text_top_padding' => '3'

I'm getting that error too - "TypeError: this.getStats is not a function" in the Files & Images Area.

I'm using 2.3.2 and all trunk versions of swfupload, dataobject and image_gallery

When I try to upload images into the Files and Images portion of the CMS, I get the same error. This is only after updating both dataobject_manager and swfupload to the latest trunk versions.

TypeError: Result of expression 'this.getStats' [undefined] is not a function.

Sorry about that, guys. I checked in some bunk code. Try an update.
