Editor Upload With Custom Primary Key

Editor Upload With Custom Primary Key

Greetings, I use certain table to store files paths.
But I use special primary key (key_id).
Although I've defined key_id in the editor, it still using the ID in file naming and referencing.
Here is my code:

            Upload::inst($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/uploads/__ID__.__EXTN__')
                ->db('files_list', 'key_id', [
                    'key_id'=> getSpecialID() // Return unique primary key
                    'name' => Upload::DB_FILE_NAME,
                    'file_size' => Upload::DB_FILE_SIZE,
                    'file_type' => Upload::DB_CONTENT_TYPE,
                    'path' => Upload::DB_WEB_PATH,
                    'realpath' => Upload::DB_SYSTEM_PATH,
                ])
                ->dbClean(function ($data) {
                    // Remove the files from the file system
                    for ($i = 0, $ien = count($data); $i < $ien; $i++) {
                        unlink($data[$i]['realpath']);
                    }
                    // Have Editor remove the rows from the database
                    return true;
                })          

I find my files in the desirder location, but named with the table id column. Also the reference in the main table, it is referencing to ID.
Did I missed something ?

    The libraries use the insert id which I think explains this. I'm assuming you are using MySQL? The driver for that always uses the id returned by the database.

    I need to have a bit of a think about the right way to handle this, but at the moment, rather than using the default upload action with a string, you could use your own to move it into the location required.

    I see.
    The solution you mentioned is fine, but I think the move_uploaded_file method is running before database row insertion, thus I can't access the the $id of the inserted row before insertion, or does it (the upload function) run after database insertion ?
    Anyway just was wondering, I think I just leave the id of file for now.

    The db execute runs before the custom action function so you should have access to the database id in the action callback.
