Hi everbody

Does somebody know a good tutorial that explains how file upload can be created for a frontend extension?

I have found the fileupload extension, that does this. And I have thought about using the logic from this extension for my upload handler. But I still don't know how to make the actual form in my extension.

The function to display the upload form in the extension fileupload looks like this:

function displayUploadForm(){
$content = $this->cObj->cObjGetSingle($this->conf['uploadformcObject'],$this->conf['uploadformcObject.']);
$content = str_replace("###STATUS###",(empty($this->status) ? "" : array_pop($this->status)),$content);
return $content;

But usually I have made the input fields like this:


So actually what I need is a bit more understanding about how forms are made for the frontend in extensions.
