In a form I have added a field for images, set the file source to "Advanced upload widget (Plupload)" ( all other checkboxes are unchecked ) and I get the interface. I want to make it autoupload images after being drag and droped or selected via the add image link. The form is loaded in a custom created page using a personal made module. I tried to set


in myModule_form_alter and also called a myModule_after_build. None of the situations work and I can't figure out where or better sayd when should I set this value. Here is the code for the module :

function add_new_article_menu() {
  $items['addAnnouncement'] = array(
  'title' => 'Adauga anunt',
  'page callback' => 'add_new_article_simple_page',
  'access callback' => TRUE,
return $items;

function add_new_article_simple_page() {
form_load_include($form_state, 'inc', 'node', 'node.pages');
$node_form = new stdClass;
$node_form->type = 'announcement';
$node_form->language = LANGUAGE_NONE;
$form = drupal_get_form('announcement_node_form', $node_form);
return $form;
function add_new_article_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id){
    return $form;
function add_new_article_after_build($form, &$form_state) {
  return $form;

Modules installed for plupload : FileField Sources Plupload, File Field Sources , Plupload integration module

Any help is most appreciated.

Drupal's plupload module does not support '#autoupload'. Or at least that's what I experienced. I wrote my own behavior for this:

(function($) {

Drupal.plupload = Drupal.plupload || {};

 * Attaches the Plupload behavior to each Plupload form element.
Drupal.behaviors.mymodule_plupload = {
  attach: function (context, settings) {
    $(".plupload-element", context).once('mymodule-plupload-init', function () {
      var uploader = $(this).pluploadQueue();
      if(uploader !== undefined) {
        uploader.bind('FilesAdded', function(up, files) {
          $('.form-submit').prop( "disabled", true );
        uploader.bind('UploadComplete', function() {
          if (uploader.files.length == (uploader.total.uploaded + uploader.total.failed)) {
            // If nothing is being uploaded right now:
            $('.form-submit').prop( "disabled", false );


I based it on codes and hints from the Internet, but I can't recall exact sources. I'll be happy to fix that and add reference links if someone recognizes parts of this.

  • interesting, let me try it out. But yes, Drupal's plupload does suport autoupload : drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/87033/… . Problem is the solution is working if I programatically create it, but nobody seems to have any info on editing after load ...

  • @Cristi it is said to support autoupload. I simply wasn't ever able to actually see it to do so and decided it will be easier to piece my own chunk of codes together.

  • Oooh , I see. Regarding the code, are there any changes I need to make for it to work on my page? I made a js file with that code , edited mymodule with the actual name, checked if its loaded in page, but still doesn't work...

  • Make sure your elements are correctly marked with plupload-element class, and if there are any errors in JS console - share. Oh, and consider adding some console.log to see if behavior is executed. Other than that? It should be generic enough. It does not contain anything related specifically to my site.
