Hi I am following the solution provided here but the multiple images are not uploading in the form.

I click on the browse button in the form, new window opens for selecting the images and when I tried to select more than one images from there, it is not happening. It only select one image at a time. How can I select multiple option from here.

what should I do to do this correctly.

Here is my image form

class Vertax_Blog_Block_Adminhtml_Article_Edit_Tab_Image extends Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Widget_Form
protected function _prepareForm()

   $form = new Varien_Data_Form();
   $fieldset = $form->addFieldset('image_form',
$fieldset->addType('image', Mage::getConfig()->getBlockClassName('blog/adminhtml_article_helper_image'));
//$fieldset->addType('image', 'Vertax_Blog_Block_Adminhtml_Article_Helper_Image');

$fieldset->addField('image', 'file', array(
        'label'     => 'Image',
        'required'  =>  false,
        'name'      => 'image[]',
    'multiple'  => 'multiple',
    'mulitple'  =>  true,

if (Mage::getSingleton('adminhtml/session')->getBlogPostData()) {
    } elseif (Mage::registry('article_data')) {
    return parent::_prepareForm();

Just so this question would have an answer...
Based on the comments, the issue is the field type:

$fieldset->addField('image', 'file', array(...))

should be

$fieldset->addField('image', 'image', array(...))

  • @Waseem. This seams like a totally different question. Ask a new one and post your controller code in there.
