[SOLVED] Catchable fatal error: Object of class stdClass could not be converted to string

Recommended Posts

Sorry,

 

I think this is PHP.

 

Can anyone tell what is causing the error in the subject line? My script looks like this:

 

<?php
$query = "SELECT `albumname`, `userid` FROM `banddisco` WHERE userid='$userid'";
$result = mysql_query($query);

echo "<select name='albumname'>";
for($i=0; $i < mysql_num_rows($result); $i++) {

    $albumname = mysql_fetch_object($result);
    echo "<option value='". $albumname->userid ."'>". $albumname->albumname ."</option>";

}
echo "</select>";  





//define a maxim size for the uploaded images in Kb
define ("MAX_SIZE","1024");

//This function reads the extension of the file. It is used to determine if the file is an image by checking the extension.
function getExtension($str) {
$i = strrpos($str,".");
if (!$i) { return ""; }
$l = strlen($str) - $i;
$ext = substr($str,$i+1,$l);
return $ext;
}

//This variable is used as a flag. The value is initialized with 0 (meaning no error found) and it will be changed to 1 if an errro occures. If the error occures the file will not be uploaded.
$errors=0;
//checks if the form has been submitted
if(isset($_POST['Submit']))
{
//reads the name of the file the user submitted for uploading
$image=$_FILES['image']['name'];
//if it is not empty
if ($image)
{
//get the original name of the file from the clients machine
$filename = stripslashes($_FILES['image']['name']);
//get the extension of the file in a lower case format
$extension = getExtension($filename);
$extension = strtolower($extension);
//if it is not a known extension, we will suppose it is an error and will not upload the file, otherwize we will do more tests
if (($extension != "jpg") && ($extension != "jpeg") && ($extension != "png") && ($extension != "gif"))
{
//print error message
echo '<h1>Unknown extension!</h1>';
$errors=1;
}
else
{
//get the size of the image in bytes
//$_FILES['image']['tmp_name'] is the temporary filename of the file in which the uploaded file was stored on the server
$size=filesize($_FILES['image']['tmp_name']);

//compare the size with the maxim size we defined and print error if bigger
if ($size > MAX_SIZE*1024)
{
echo '<h1>You have exceeded the size limit!</h1>';
$errors=1;
}


$newname="users/$userid/".$albumname;
//we verify if the image has been uploaded, and print error instead
$copied = copy($_FILES['image']['tmp_name'], $newname);
if (!$copied)
{
echo '<h1>Copy unsuccessfull!</h1>';
$errors=1;
}}}}

//If no errors registred, print the success message
if(isset($_POST['Submit']) && !$errors)
{
header("location: ../member_home.php?cover=1 ");
      exit();
}

?>

 

and the error is appearing on line 120 which is as below:

 

$newname="users/$userid/".$albumname;

 

Thanks

$albumname is an object. I think you meant $albumname->albumname.

genius!

 

One thing, it stores as just a file, could I make it a jpg?

I think you want to put the extension on it unless you want to convert any image to a jpg image. That's a different question I believe.

 

In that same line you quoted in your first post, tack on the variable $extension. That should do it.
