Hi, I want to do something like this..

I have front end form with text fields and upload fields.. User can enter text and upload images and after pressing submit button, page is created.

One problem which I have is, uploadfield uploads images automaticaly, and if user didn't press submit and leave page, page is not created, but images sits in assets folder.

How could I make that images first goes to temp folder, and after user presses Submit button, images goes to Final folder and page is created?

Thanks for any help :)

To change the folder name the upload field uploads files into:

		$YourUploadField= $form->Fields()->dataFieldByName('YourUploadField');
		$folder = '';

Not sure about the rest.
