"Access Denied" submitting form with Javascript?

The following javascript code generates an "Access denied" error at the
indicated line.

This sample should allow the user to click "Browse" and choose a file. Once
the user has selected a file the form is automatically submitted. I'm trying
to avoid having seperate browse and submit actions.

Can someone explain why I'm getting the error and how I can accomplish this




<form name="form1" id="form1" method="post" action="test.ht m">
<input type="button" value="Browse" onclick="return vlu();">

<form name="form2" id="form2" method="post" action="test.ht m"
style="display: none;">
<input type="file" name="file1" id="file1">

<script language="javas cript"> <!--
function vlu() {
form2.file1.cli ck();
if (form2.file1.va lue != "") {
form2.submit(); //*** ERROR HERE

Correct, the type="file" input element gives little access, reason why is
security, so, chances are, access is denied to many of its objects as well
as .click() method, run a For In on it maybe, to see which you can access,
but most do not give access due to security.

Besides the security issue, what if I just accidentally release
the mouse button over the wrong file? You don't want to make it
too easy to make a potentially serious mistake.

Hi there, I have this problem which is really driving me nuts for a couple of days.

I'm trying to upload a file using an asp:FileUpload control and an asp:LinkButton. This works fine, while there is an actual filepath in the fileupload upload control. Even an empty field works.

When the UseSubmitBehavior is set to true (default), the button does...

Using VB6 I am trying to call an access form. One site gave the code, but the first line was: Dim oAccess as Access.application When I try to run vb. it tells me that the user type has not been defined. I guess VB 6 does not have Access.application built in as a user type. I have no idea how to (or where to) correctly define this user type. Any ideas are appreciated! Michael.

Hi, I'm getting an "Access is denied" error in IE when I try to focus an input box with node.focus() My understanding is that should only happen when the domains are different of the Javascript and the element that its trying to focus.
