I am using the uploadify module on a frontend form and everything works fine except that I've run in to some problems submitting the form via ajax (the form is in a modal and I can't really refresh the whole page).

With the images being uploaded on selection it works fine to then submit the form using ajaxForm() but if I set the uploadOnSubmit parameter on the MultipleFileUploadField the form is submitted to a blank page instead.

Form code:

    function __construct($controller, $name) {
        $fields = new FieldSet(
            $images = new MultipleFileUploadField('Images', _t('UploadForm.IMAGES', 'Images'))
        $actions = new FieldSet(
            new FormAction('doupload', _t('UploadForm.UPLOAD', "Upload"))
        parent::__construct($controller, $name, $fields, $actions);
    public function doupload($data, $form) {
        $memberID = Member::currentUserID();
        if(isset($data['Images']) && is_array($data['Images'])) {
            foreach($data['Images'] as $id) {
                if($file = DataObject::get_by_id("File", (int) $id)) {
                    $bookImage = new BookImage();
                    $bookImage->ImageID = $file->ID;
                    $bookImage->MemberID = $memberID;
        $response['success'] = True;
        $response['message'] = _t('CartController.UPLOADSUCCESS', 'Your upload was successful!');


            dataType: 'json',
            success: function(data) { 
                var url = window.location.pathname + '/show_mygallery';
                $('#ImageList').load(url, function() {
                    // Clear uploadify form
                    $('#UploadForm_UploadForm .inputs input').remove();
                    $('#UploadForm_UploadForm .upload_previews li').remove();

and here is the code in uploadify_init.js that submits the form by-passing the ajaxForm binding, line 61:

				onAllComplete : function(event) {
					$e = $(event.currentTarget);
					$container = $e.parents('.UploadifyField:first');
					if($e.metadata().upload_on_submit) {


Am I missing something or is there a better way to go about this?
