Multiple Ajax Image Upload without Refreshing Page using Jquery.

Today I am presenting the most important social networking feature called multiple ajax image upload without refreshing the page using jquery and PHP. We just modified few lines of code in jqery.form.js plugin and renamed that to jquery.wallform.js. This feature is one of the key feature in Wall Script sale, big thanks to Arun Sekar for this code trick.

Javascript Code
$("#photoimg").live('change',function(){})- photoimg is the ID name of INPUT FILE tag and $('#imageform').ajaxForm() - imageform is the ID name of FORM. While changing INPUT it calls FORM submit without refreshing page using ajaxForm() method. Uploaded images will <i>prepend</i> inside <i>#preview</i> tag.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/
ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.wallform.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function()
{

$('#photoimg').live('change', function()
 {
var A=$("#imageloadstatus");
var B=$("#imageloadbutton");

$("#imageform").ajaxForm({target: '#preview',
beforeSubmit:function(){
A.show();
B.hide();
},
success:function(){
A.hide();
B.show();
},
error:function(){
A.hide();
B.show();
} }).submit();
});

});
</script>
Here hiding and showing #imageloadstatus and #imageloadbutton based on form upload submit status.

index.php
Contains simple PHP and HTML code. Here $session_id=1 means user id session value.
<?php
include('db.php');
session_start();
$session_id='1'; // User login session value
?>
<div id='preview'>
</div>
<form id="imageform" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" action='ajaximage.php'>
Upload image: 
<div id='imageloadstatus' style='display:none'><img src="loader.gif" alt="Uploading...."/></div>
<div id='imageloadbutton'>
<input type="file" name="photoimg" id="photoimg" />

</div>
</form>

Sample database design for Users.

Users
Contains user details username, password, email, profile_image and profile_image_small etc.
CREATE TABLE `users` (
`uid` int(11) AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
`username` varchar(255) UNIQUE KEY,
`password` varchar(100),
`email` varchar(255) UNIQUE KEY,
`profile_image` varchar(200),
`profile_image_small` varchar(200),
)

ajaximage.php
Contains PHP code. This script helps you to upload images into uploads folder. Image file name rename into timestamp+session_id.extention
<?php
include('db.php');
session_start();
$session_id='1'; // User session id
$path = "uploads/";

function getExtension($str)
{
$i = strrpos($str,".");
if (!$i)
{
return "";
}
$l = strlen($str) - $i;
$ext = substr($str,$i+1,$l);
return $ext;
}

$valid_formats = array("jpg", "png", "gif", "bmp","jpeg","PNG","JPG","JPEG","GIF","BMP");
if(isset($_POST) and $_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == "POST")
{
$name = $_FILES['photoimg']['name'];
$size = $_FILES['photoimg']['size'];
if(strlen($name))
{
$ext = getExtension($name);
if(in_array($ext,$valid_formats))
{
if($size<(1024*1024)) // Image size max 1 MB
{
$actual_image_name = time().$session_id.".".$ext;
$tmp = $_FILES['photoimg']['tmp_name'];
if(move_uploaded_file($tmp, $path.$actual_image_name))
{
mysql_query("UPDATE users SET profile_image='$actual_image_name' WHERE uid='$session_id'");
echo "<img src='uploads/".$actual_image_name."' class='preview'>";
}
else
echo "failed";
}
else
echo "Image file size max 1 MB";
}
else
echo "Invalid file format..";
}
else
echo "Please select image..!";
exit;
}
?>

db.php
Database configuration file, just modify database credentials.
<?php
$mysql_hostname = "localhost";
$mysql_user = "username";
$mysql_password = "password";
$mysql_database = "database";
$prefix = "";
$bd = mysql_connect($mysql_hostname, $mysql_user, $mysql_password) or die("Opps some thing went wrong");
mysql_select_db($mysql_database, $bd) or die("Opps some thing went wrong");
?>

Writing effective Regular Expression for validating input fields.

Will discuss about basic regular expression in three stages.


Stage 1
Symbol             Explanation

^                       Start of string
$                       End of string
.                        Any single character
+                       One or more character
\                        Escape Special characters
?                       Zero or more characters

Input exactly match with “abc”
var A = /^abc$/;

Input start with “abc”
var B = /^abc/;

Input end with “abc”
var C = /abc$/;

Input “abc” and one character allowed Eg. abcx
var D = /^abc.$/;

Input  “abc” and more than one character allowed Eg. abcxy
var E = /^abc.+$/;

Input exactly match with “abc.def”, cause (.) escaped
var F = /^abc\.def$/;

Passes any characters followed or not by “abc” Eg. abcxyz12....
var G = /^abc.+?$/

Stage 2

Char                Group Explanation

[abc]                 Should match any single of character
[^abc]               Should not match any single character
[a-zA-Z0-9]      Characters range lowercase a-z, uppercase A-Z and numbers
[a-z-._]              Match against character range lowercase a-z and ._- special chats
(.*?)                  Capture everything enclosed with brackets
(com|info)         Input should be “com” or “info”
{2}                   Exactly two characters
{2,3}                Minimum 2 characters and Maximum 3 characters
{2,}                  More than 2 characters


Put together all in one URL validation.
var URL = /^(http|https|ftp):\/\/(www+\.)?[a-zA-Z0-9]+\.([a-zA-Z]{2,4})\/?/;

URL.test(“http://9lessons.info”);                      // pass
URL.test(“http://www.9lessons.info”);            // pass
URL.test(“https://9lessons.info/”);                   // pass
URL.test(“http://9lessons.info/index.html”);    // pass

Stage 3

Short Form     Equivalent              Explanation

\d                      [0-9]                         Any numbers
\D                     [^0-9]                       Any non-digits
\w                     [a-zA-Z0-9_]            Characters,numbers and underscore
\W                    [^a-zA-Z0-9_]          Except any characters, numbers and underscore
\s                       -                                White space character
\S                      -                                Non white space character


var number = /^(\+\d{2,4})?\s?(\d{10})$/;  // validating phone number

number.test(1111111111);           //pass
number.test(+111111111111);     //pass
number.test(+11 1111111111);    //pass
number.test(11111111);               //Fail
