Pass <file> to JavaScript functions along with other form elements

P: 228
I have a small function that accepts form contents and passes them to a php file with post (ajax). Now, i need to include an upload file element in the form and that file be passed to the script so the php file can upload it. It is not been passed at all.

What would be the easiest way to do this?

Iím not sure you can pass a file in AJAX at all. even regular forms let the browser application handle that (as JS does not have file system access).

Use an (hidden) iframe and post to it to achieve the same effect as Ajax.
