do you want still want to have a “browse” button? or nothing at all for the user to select an image?
if that is the case, just set the value of “picture” to the img path in your upload controller as you can’t set the value for a file upload in most broweser…
go to http://gotapi.com/ to read about HTML and other languages…its pretty handy
lookup “input” under HTML and you’ll find that The VALUE
attribute specifies the name of the initial file, but it is typically ignored by browsers as a security precaution.
I use file_column to upload images from either the file system or via a URL
check out my site at www.blogsaic.com and upload a tile both ways…to see how it works…
I upload the file system img the normal way, but the URL way is all done in the controller, by simply over writting the file column attribute for the image, one the url is verified a legit url to an image
