* @ example php page to implement MazUploadClass.php
* @author: Mazharul Anwar(

$uploadpdf = new MazUploadClass(); //creating new object class

$test= $_FILES['pdf']; //getting file information from html page
$siz = 2097152; //size in Byte (2MB)
$fletype = "pdf"; //File type that you want to allow user to upload, currently supported formats are, image, pdf, audio, video,
* @ return $errorFlag
* @validate the input type
$uploadpdf->uploadPDF($test, $siz, $fletype);
/*----------/end of validation--------*/

if($uploadpdf->errorFlag['fileFlag'] == "yes"){
"Ahh...crap!something went wrong.";
//give appropriate error msg to the user as something wrong with the file
" the class working";

* @Directory to save file: you can specify your own directory or you can call existing class function
* @upload file: you can use either class function or your own
$uploadToFolder = "image"; //Folder name you want to upload your file under...yourroot/user_uploads, you can use this variable with createpath() function

* @return a path ($dir) dynamically created every time when you upload something
* the path is ... user_uploads/$uploadToFolder/currentyear/currentmonth/currentdate/
* @if you want your own upload path don't call this function, instead use your own path and add your path with original path below
* @it returns path
$uploadpdf->createPath($fletype); //you can replace the variable :)
* random code

$tmpFileName = $_FILES['pdf']['tmp_name'];
*@if you use custom path make sure your path is already created in the server
* and include your path in $originalPath instead of using this '$uploadpdf->path'
$originalPath = $uploadpdf->path.$uploadpdf->randomDigit.$test['name']; //You can save this path into database as string

$uploadpdf->uploadToServer($tmpFileName, $originalPath);
