fixed the lan webserver
« on: October 13, 2004, 10:46:54 AM »
after much coffee, late nights and thousands of man hours of work ive fixed the webserver for the lan!

For those who want to know, the problem was that form post methods no longer pass the filename when you use a file input..
I fixed it with some javascript that updates a hidden input field when the filename is inserted , i then use that on the action page.

MS IE used to pass the filename, but this is actually incorrect. Firefox etc allways worked correctly ie didnt pass the filename.

Whats intresting is MS never mention they fixed it in the release notes for the particular patch that fixes/breaks the functionallity. This makes me think what else is MS putting undocumented in to all these patches we download?
