<input type="file" value="path/file.jpeg"> in Firefox

This code:

<form action="process Scan.php" method="get">
<p>
<?php
print "Scan name: <input type=\"file\" name=\"tScanFil eName\" value=
\"{$scanFileNam e}\"><br>";
addHiddenCarryo ns();
?>
<input type="submit">
</form>

does not render with the value attribute's value as the default text.
I.e., then the form renders, I want the string value of $scanFileName
already in the input field as the default text. I'm using Firefox
2.0.0.12, PHP 5.2.4 and Apache 1.3.33.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mark

The 'file' input control does not allow default values for security
reasons. This would make it too easy to steal files from the user's
machine.

And BTW: HTML also allows single quotes around attributes. This avoids
the ugly escaping like above.

Just reading from a previous thread about multiple uploads. I wanted to use script to create multiple input file elements that put the path in as a default (or something like that) based on ASP code.

I can get the value of the element. But in Netscape 7, onChange doesn't fire until focus...
