fdf_get_attachmentExtracts uploaded file embedded in the FDF


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

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

Список параметров


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.

Возвращаемые значения

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
