[ Get files from input.files instead of value on submit ]
I have following problem. I have input field in form, type of file:
<FORM action="http://server.com/cgi/handle" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post"> <P> What is your name? <INPUT type="text" name="submit-name"><BR> What files are you sending? <INPUT type="file" name="files"><BR> <INPUT type="submit" value="Send"> <INPUT type="reset"> </FORM>
var data = e.dataTransfer; var input = dojo.byId(inputName); var file = data.files[i]; input.files = file;
data is a datatransfer object, I am getting files from there.
I know, it will be possible only in few browsers, I dont care. I just need to get it working at least in FF.
So if I understand you correctly you drop some files and you want to populate a file input object
I see a drop example here http://help.dottoro.com/ljslrhdh.php
