    @Sasha... Hi, Sasha... glad the comments in the post helped you! I haven't heard of HttpFox, but I'll check it out. *Anything* that helps debugging of AJAX and iFrame work is always welcome. Concerning finding errors generated using the iFrame... I finally figured out that I could look in the HT... read more »

    @Paolo... Yes, you're right. The first submission uses Ben's iFrame approach, with a function call added that triggers a true AJAX call to retrieve the updated data and display it on the initial records display page. So, the iFrame method is used to process the initial form, then the process is h... read more »

    @Paolo... I used Ben's iFrame code for submitting the fields and image, then in the component method I process the image and run the insert query. Then I run another query to get the last_insert_id() of the inserted record (MySQL) and get the data from a query using the last_insert_id() and do one... read more »

    Hi, Paolo... I read your comment to Ben on your approach to returning the data from the submit back to your submitting page by using a struct, etc. I assume you did that to make it possible to display the image on the submitting page after the submission, based on your final comment, "it's qu... read more »

    My processing of images and data is now done with modal windows and such, so the HTML, jQuery, and CF are more complex and I've modified my approach to this a lot. My current coding isn't of much help with showing code that very directly relates to Ben's. Is your code (HTML/CF Frontend, jQuery, an... read more »

    Hi, Ben & John... I always look in the HTML tab of Firebug to view the content returned to the iFrame. I look in the iFrame itself (after commenting out the code in your jQuery that hides the iFrame) and I can see the entire CF error message. (Took me a looong time to find that message...I didn't... read more »

    Thanks, Ben. I'll test out your suggestion to see if I *really* understand. It seems to make sense, but the proof is in the, uh...modal window!... read more »

    Hi, Ben... I think showing you the code that opens the Thickbox modal window will answer your question better than I could. The code below is modified to allow me to add some animation (fades) to the showing and hiding of the window. <script> function tb_fadeIn() { var tb_pathToIma... read more »

    I was able to use this in a recently completed site, but now I want to use this in a jQuery modal window. I'm having problems figuring out how to target the modal window. Anyone tried to use Ben's technique within a modal window? Since the code is just too long and complex to show here, I'd be wi... read more »

    I figured out what the problem was, Ben. The error message, indeed, was code from CF error. The CF error was occurring because I didn't have the path correct for the folder the files would be written to the in the ajax_upload.js file. Now I'm trying to figure out the best way to handle a form wit... read more »

    Hi, Ben... I've been trying to implement your code above, but I keep running into an error that was mentioned in the comments, but no resolution was ever mentioned. After I've browsed and selected two images and click the "Upload Files" button, I get an error in Firebug: "Missing ) in parenthetic... read more »
