fdf_get_attachmentExtracts uploaded file embedded in the FDF


fdf_get_attachment(resource $fdf_document, string $fieldname, string $savepath): array

Extracts a file uploaded by means of the "file selection" field fieldname and stores it under savepath.



The FDF document handle, returned by fdf_create(), fdf_open() or fdf_open_string().



May be the name of a plain file or an existing directory in which the file is to be created under its original name. Any existing file under the same name will be overwritten.


There seems to be no other way to find out the original filename but to store the file using a directory as savepath and check for the basename it was stored under.

Valores devueltos

The returned array contains the following fields:

  • path - path were the file got stored
  • size - size of the stored file in bytes
  • type - mimetype if given in the FDF


Ejemplo #1 Storing an uploaded file

= fdf_open_string($HTTP_FDF_DATA);
$data = fdf_get_attachment($fdf, "filename", "/tmpdir");
"The uploaded file is stored in $data[path]";
