I've developed a small extension to flash uploader, that allows to enter a short description for each file that was uploaded.

Field Name: [browse button]

            [x] [thumbnail1]  image filename
                              [______description________]

            [x] [thumbnail2]  image filename
                              [______description________]

            [x] [thumbnail3]  image filename
                              [______description________]

In mockup above image thumbnail's height is larger, then image name and description field height together. That's why this will look normally together. This is pure Flash Uploader extension and can't be used with category items (e.g. links), since they naturally don't support Flash Uploader at all.

  1. I forgot to mention how to enable this functionality and how to get these
    descriptions later.

    To enable discription entering ability you need to
    specify*'description_field' => 'DescriptionFieldName'
    *in particular field declaration in unit config.

    Of course you need to create a real or virtual field that will store all
    that descriptions.

    Descriptions are stored the same way as files are - "descr1|descr2|....".
    Positions of description and uploaded file in 2 fields (with files and with
    descriptions) matches, e.g. file at position 2 in file field will have
    description at position 2 in description field.

  2. sounds really cool!

    Can we specify a maximum number of files?

  3. It's unrelated to given addon, but yes, you can specify maximal uploaded
    file count for each flash uploader control.

  4. great!
