i face this problem my friend and i found the solution.
modify line three to become as this
It is my understanding that the .click() method and .value fields are not available for <input type="file"> in some browsers.
The Mozilla-based browsers like Firefox are one such case. The only solution that appears viable is to make creative use of CSS layers to put the "visible" custom Browse button under the real Browse button and making the real Browse button transparent. That way the user only sees your custom button (not the unstyled Browse button of <input type="file"> and clicks the unstyled one when he thinks he is clicking yours.
Lame, I know, but it seems to be the only thing that can be done considering the lousy job that the W3C did with styling <input type="file">.
I am facing a problem which is kind of similar but the problem arises only if the browser is Firefox on WIndows OS. This is while uploading a file with any east asian characters in its filename. IE works fine and uploads the approrpaite file, but Firefox for some reason converts each east asian characters to "_".
For E.g., if your file name is 6<3 japanese characters>.txt
firefox changes the name as 6___.txt (3 underscore characters). Eventually, the code to upload the file from the directory fails with File NOt Found error, since it is actually looking for a file named "6___.txt"
Can somebody help me resolve this issue?[
The input type=file cannot be prepopulated, the only way
for doing is either clicking browse button directly or type the filename in the box provided beside browse.
This has been with the design itself. The intent was to prevent malicious users from, loading files by prepopulating.
This might solve your problem.Hi -- has anyone made either the css layers or the JS workaround for this work?
me know if it works for you.
The author posts his code in snippets and I seem to have missed something....?
