Dynamically populate upload fields

  1. Hello,
    I use Gravity Forms with the User Registration Add-On. I created a form to register a user and have added functionality to read the registered user-information to dynamically fill the form, if a user is logged in and wants to modify his registered information. So far so good. But the user can also upload a photograph. The upload-fields don't have the option to dynamically populate the field, which I can understand. But now I want to show the photograph in the form, if a user has uploaded the photograph. So he can choose to upload another, or leave the already uploaded photograph. Can someone give me a direction how to do that?

  2. I had to do this as well. My solutions (admittedly not ideal) was to leave a gap in the form and after the GF shortcode, floating a div that contained the profile picture up into the gap:

    <?php echo do_shortcode('[gravityform id=X name="X"]'); ?>
    <div class="edit-image">
    <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail($editID, 'thumbnail'); ?>

    ...Where the class edit-image has a negative top-margin value.

  3. Thank you! This was the direction I was thinking too. I hoped there would be a more "integrated" solution, but I will move with this one! Thanks again!
