AJAX file uploads
HTML5 should officially support AJAX based file uploads. Current workarounds
exist like submiting form to an
iframe but these are just hacks. What I am saying is that the XMLHttpRequest
object should have a property like
file which is an array and the IDs of the file upload input type can be stored
in this array. When the submit method is
called, the files are uploaded.
Also, HTML5 should provide certain file upload related events - 4 events are
suggested below
a )onuploadbar - This event is raise each time a certain amount (bar) of
percentage of file is uploaded. E.g. event is
raised each time 10% of file is uploaded.
b )onuploadcomplete - This event is raised when all files are uploaded
c )onfilecomplete - For multiple file uploads, this event is raised for each
file that has been successfully uploaded
d )onuploadfailed - This event is raised if any error occurs during upload
causing the upload to fail
