Style File Input

Hi,

Does anyone knows how to style and input of type file with JQuery?

I want to use an image as the button or maybe a simple normal input
styled with CSS.
I also want to style the input where the path is ... I want it to have
a grey background and no border.

Any idea of how to accomplish this?

Thanks,
Miguel

No.

Rule of thumb: What CSS cannot do, no script can do.

You can't always have what you want.

BTW: jQuery is junk, and there is no indication that this could change.

"Can I style file inputs?" - use Google. Has been asked frequently here
and in neighboring groups.

To make it short and easy: You can't. You can hide it behind a faux
input, but that's it.
