Firefox 3 problem

P: 24
Hi all,

I wanted to browse a file using HTML.
So, I have written this code:

[HTML]<input type="file" style="height:22px" size=30 name="file" id="file"><br><br>[/HTML]

and JavaScript code for get the path of that selected file as
[HTML]var file_name = document.getElementById('file').value;
alert(file_name);
[/HTML]

But problem is I am getting only file name, not full path. Its working fine on Internet Explorer and Firefox version older than 3.0.
Then what should be the problem? Is it Firefox 3 issue or is there any error in my code?

Thanks

No problem with your code. Firefox 3 has changed the behaviour of file upload elements. See http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs..._upload_fields.
