This has nothing to do with html/css. Visit one of the programming language boards.

Are you trying to get a file?
[html]
<input type="file" name="SomeFile" class="SomeFile" />
[/html]

finally i managed to do so ..

i tried the code ...


<input type = file name = "" onkeypress = "return false" onkeydown = "return false" onkeyup = "return false">

that stops the user to enter the file location manually ..
only user can enter the file name by browsing
