So, once you get the path to the file on the user's local drive... what exactly do you intend to do with it?
Thanks for the link.
I solved the problem on another way ..
var file = document.getElementById("File");
file.type = "file";
var Filepath = file.value;
var Filname = Filepath.substr(Filepath.lastIndexOf('\\')+1,Filepath.lastIndexOf('.')+1);
if (Filname != 0)
i get the path, extrude the filename and open it with a programm used by the pc.
Next step will be to make an own input file component, so i can use it right from the start without the type change.
I know that the file must be in a special folder, buts thats totally ok for my purpose.
Why would someone use a web page to open files on their own computer? What's the use case here?
