Get Full File Pathname In Google Chrome Using Input Type "file"?

Dec 2, 2011

Am developing a form in which user image should be viewed and stored in web database. I am using html5 and javascript. While using input type= "file" to browse the image, chrome shows the file path as c:/fakepath/*.jpg.

How can I get the full path name in google chrome to display image and to store it in web database.

If you have some other options to display and store the image in web database using javascript and html5

I know that the input "file" type can't be customized very well using css, so I figured I might try to make my own with javascript. The only problem is, I don't know too much about javascript. point me in the right direction on how to make my own custom file upload box in javascript that works the same way as the default one works (so I don't have to edit my PHP coding). Also, heres something I'd like to achieve: [URL]

JQuery :: Get Full Image Name For FILE Input?

Nov 22, 2010

I'm trying to get the full value from an "image" field, with this:

$('#client_local_offer_image').change(function(){
alert($('#client_local_offer_image').val());
});

However, the value only seems to include the filename - and not the full path (what I'm trying to achieve, is a "preview" feature - which will shrink the image down to a fixed size, and update an existing <img id="xxx"> bit in the HTML)

Reading Full Value Of Upload-type Input?

Oct 3, 2009

I have a page with a customizable background. The user can choose a picture to set as the background by finding the picture file they want after clicking the upload input. The path of the file they select is saved into a cookie, and the page then switches backgrounds.

This all works perfectly, but the value that the upload input returns is only the file name, not the full path. For example, let's say I wanted to choose a picture named "bg.jpg" in the "Windows" folder of the C drive. The full path would be "C:/Windows/bg.jpg". However, the value that the input returns is just "bg.jpg".

How would I have the input return the entire path of the file using JavaScript?

Script - Replaces The Usual File Upload Input - Works On Every Browser Ie7 Ie8 Ie9 FF Safari Chrome But Not On Opera

Oct 29, 2011

I'm using a nice little script which replaces the usual file upload input with whatever image you want and then with JS makes sure that an invisible 'browse' button is underneath the mouse pointer whenever the mouse is moved over the image you want to use.

It works on every browser ie7 ie8 ie9 FF safari chrome but not on opera. On Opera the regular file input appears.

I've had a good hoke round the 'net and I know there's loads of scripts which do similar things. But either they are too complicated for me to figure out how to use them eg uploadify (bit of a newbie) or they do similar things but just not as well - like making the custom image the same size as the file input would be (there's issues with that too).

Here's the script I'm using - there's not much to it

How come it doesn't work in Opera grrrr... Is there anyway to fix it? This is perfect for what I want apart from not working in Opera.

Add/remove Multiple Input Type="file" Without Losing Value

Aug 7, 2005

example with <ol> as parent.

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
var gFiles = 0;
function addFile() {
var li = document.createElement('li');
li.setAttribute('id', 'file-' + gFiles);
li.innerHTML = '<input type="file" name="file[]"><span onclick="removeFile('file-' + gFiles + '')" style="cursor:pointer;">Remove</span>'
document.getElementById('files-root').appendChild(li);
gFiles++;
}
function removeFile(aId) {
var obj = document.getElementById(aId);
obj.parentNode.removeChild(obj);
}
--></script>
<span onclick="addFile()" style="cursor:pointer;">Add</span>
<ol id="files-root">
<li><input type="file" name="file[]">
</ol>

example using table:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
var gFiles = 0;
function addFile() {
var tr = document.createElement('tr');
tr.setAttribute('id', 'file-' + gFiles);
var td = document.createElement('td');
td.innerHTML = '<input type="file" name="file[]"><span onclick="removeFile('file-' + gFiles + '')" style="cursor:pointer;">Remove</span>'
tr.appendChild(td);
document.getElementById('files-root').appendChild(tr);
gFiles++;
}
function removeFile(aId) {
var obj = document.getElementById(aId);
obj.parentNode.removeChild(obj);
}

--></script>
<span onclick="addFile()" style="cursor:pointer;">Add</span>
<table><tbody id="files-root">
<tr><td><input type="file" name="file[]"></td></tr>
</table>

I did the ol one first then he said he wanted it as a table for some reason.. so here they are..

Get Path Information From Input Type="file" In Firefox?

Feb 4, 2009

I'm posting this here because I think JavaScript is probably the only way to do it, but if anyone can point me elsewhere, that's fine.

In a bespoke CMS (not a publicly accessible application), I need to let my user upload files that are beyond the server's file upload size for http. I can use PHP to do this via ftp, but to do so I need the full path to the source file, which I could then pass in a hidden field. However, the value of the file input field only returns the filename, not the full path. I understand that this is for security reasons, but is there any way round it?

I've tried jumping through all manner of hoops to try and select the text in the field - which does show the full path of the browsed file - in order to put it in the hidden field, but so far I've failed. And I must do this in FF3 for various reasons.

Events For Input Type="file"

Jul 23, 2005

I have a webpage where I want the user to input filenames. To make this easier,
I use a file input type so that the user can select files rather than typing in
the filename, using the HTML below.

<input type="file" size="25" maxlength="256" id="filename" onchange="AddFile()"/>

The problem I have is that the javascript function AddFile() is only run under
Internet Explorer, and not under Mozilla. I need the function to run each time a
file is selected as the filenames are added to a text box (the user is creating
a list of files).

Is there some way of having this work under Mozilla?

How To Check The Input File Object File Size On Client Side?

Dec 20, 2004

I have a form with three Input File form objects in which the user can add image files. But I am worried about the problems these controls can lead, because to check the file size the server needs to receive the entire file, so serious problems may happen, for example:

1. Malicious user trying to collapse the website sending big files.

2. Users that have not seen the warning “Maximum size: 100 KB&#65533; for each image, and try to send three image files consisting in 1,5 MB each one. These users will have a bad experience waiting one hour or more to upload the images, and after that receive an alert saying “Oooops! Your image files are too big.&#65533; And also, web server will waste an important amount of resources. The same case with 100 users at the same time can be a nightmare!


I have been searching a way to check the file size on client side without having to force user to install anything, but I think that there isn’ t nothing to do with javascript. But I found an interesting PHP article that explains a way to do it with this server side language. The technique consists in:

“A hidden field (measured in bytes) that precede the file input field, and its value is the maximum filesize accepted. This is an advisory to the browser, PHP also checks it. This form element should always be used as it saves users the trouble of waiting for a big file being transferred only to find that it was too big and the transfer failed. Code:
