  • Check which browsers support the current upload form
  • Provide the current fallback (without AJAX) for the browsers that don't (if any)

Fallback Form #22

@SimoneTaliercio

Ahi ahi... me too I would be greatly supported if the fallback FORM would upload through AJAX.
Unfortunately (?) I'm in a "Web Desktop Application" which is difficult to "keep and restore" its status after a refresh.

Any suggestion how to achieve a file(s) upload through the fallback form without switching page after clicking "submit" ?

Thanks a ton for the help! :_)

This issue is 6 months old, @enyo where are you on implementing AJAX fallback?

@arcovoltaico

It's really an important issue, not being able to falling back to an AJAX classic file-type input for IE8 when JS is available. With this addition your plugin would be a no-brainer ;) Cheers!

@envision

Yes please, I agree @arcovoltaico! I have implemented a basic fallback that is IE8 proof but it was a whole lot of work. For example there was some quirk in the way IE8 handled some certain request data, I don't recall here what it was to be more specific.

I think my Dropzone implementation & customization took around 40-50 hours with cross-browser compatibility testing. Dropzone is awesome but I would really like see it developed further – or backwards ;)

@arcovoltaico

Maybe it's time for a @envisio fork, isn't it? ;)

I hear you. I'll try to make it part of the next release.

@envision

My code is far from polished as I'm not a plugin developer. I can share you my code though if it helps you with building a more awesome Dropzone release :) You may drop me an email for that, the address is shown in my profile page.

@arcovoltaico

Really nice!! Thanks to both. I'll try to contribute when get more experience with this piece of cake ;)

@timhartmann

Can you post an example how did you set your fallback?

since there's no news about, i think one could load a fallback script - always for example - like with a jquery call $.getScript("jquery.form.js"), $.getScript("my-custom-ajax-fallback.js")...
