Property Details

$error public property

An error code describing the status of this file uploading.

See also http://www.php.net/manual/en/features.file-upload.errors.php.

public integer $error null
$name public property

The original name of the file being uploaded

public string $name null
$size public property

The actual size of the uploaded file in bytes

public integer $size null
$tempName public property

The path of the uploaded file on the server. Note, this is a temporary file which will be automatically deleted by PHP after the current request is processed.

public string $tempName null
$type public property

The MIME-type of the uploaded file (such as "image/gif"). Since this MIME type is not checked on the server-side, do not take this value for granted. Instead, use yii\helpers\FileHelper::getMimeType() to determine the exact MIME type.

public string $type null

Method Details

__toString() public method

String output.

This is PHP magic method that returns string representation of an object. The implementation here returns the uploaded file's name.

getExtension() public method

public string getExtension ( )

public boolean getHasError ( )
return boolean

Whether there is an error with the uploaded file. Check $error for detailed error code information.

getInstance() public static method

Returns an uploaded file for the given model attribute.

The file should be uploaded using yii\widgets\ActiveField::fileInput().

See also getInstanceByName().

public static yii\web\UploadedFile getInstance ( $model, $attribute )
$model yii\base\Model

The data model

$attribute string

The attribute name. The attribute name may contain array indexes. For example, '[1]file' for tabular file uploading; and 'file[1]' for an element in a file array.

return yii\web\UploadedFile

The instance of the uploaded file. Null is returned if no file is uploaded for the specified model attribute.

getInstanceByName() public static method

Returns an uploaded file according to the given file input name.

The name can be a plain string or a string like an array element (e.g. 'Post[imageFile]', or 'Post[0][imageFile]').

public static null|yii\web\UploadedFile getInstanceByName ( $name )
$name string

The name of the file input field.

return null|yii\web\UploadedFile

The instance of the uploaded file. Null is returned if no file is uploaded for the specified name.

getInstances() public static method

Returns all uploaded files for the given model attribute.

public static yii\web\UploadedFile[] getInstances ( $model, $attribute )
$model yii\base\Model

The data model

$attribute string

The attribute name. The attribute name may contain array indexes for tabular file uploading, e.g. '[1]file'.

return yii\web\UploadedFile[]

Array of UploadedFile objects. Empty array is returned if no available file was found for the given attribute.

getInstancesByName() public static method

Returns an array of uploaded files corresponding to the specified file input name.

This is mainly used when multiple files were uploaded and saved as 'files[0]', 'files[1]', 'files[n]'..., and you can retrieve them all by passing 'files' as the name.

public static yii\web\UploadedFile[] getInstancesByName ( $name )
$name string

The name of the array of files

return yii\web\UploadedFile[]

The array of UploadedFile objects. Empty array is returned if no adequate upload was found. Please note that this array will contain all files from all sub-arrays regardless how deeply nested they are.

reset() public static method

Cleans up the loaded UploadedFile instances.

This method is mainly used by test scripts to set up a fixture.

public static void reset ( )
saveAs() public method

Saves the uploaded file.

Note that this method uses php's move_uploaded_file() method. If the target file $file already exists, it will be overwritten.

See also $error.

public boolean saveAs ( $file, $deleteTempFile true )
$file string

The file path used to save the uploaded file

$deleteTempFile boolean

Whether to delete the temporary file after saving. If true, you will not be able to save the uploaded file again in the current request.
