Validating input type file

When the button is clicked, the Javascript checks whether the client browser supports this feature called File API or not, and then we move to next part where we actually access the size from selected file and decide our next move.The above examples shows the basic things you can do with File API, directly interact with client files without the use of alternative methods.Finally we created a class to make validating more convenient.

Net controls and components Vallivalli my requirement is that the use sudn't even enter a valida path. As djr33 says, you must already be using a server-side script, or your form won't do anything :) he has options only to select a file and on uploading [clicking the button] it has to check whether a file is been selected. The file input is a rather unstandardised element, and although it usually manifests itself as the popular textbox and button, it doesn't have to according to the standards. A function that always returns false isn't "validation" :) Also, that will only work in IE, and will throw an error in other browsers, since event is undefined. It will always return false, since there's no way to actually validate the input.

sure, add a user friendly thing that will stop them from wasting with, with javascript, but you should also add something more secure (javascript can be gotten around) serverside to check the file then as well. By always returning false to on Key Press it will make it impossible to write text directly into the textbox, so the user needs to use the Browse button to select a file, this guarantees that the file exists (unless you delete it after selecting it but before submitting the form) so in a way it IS validation since it assures that the input is VALID.

I assume that you have basic knowledge on Object Oriented Programming. Our class must prevent XSS attacks and validate inputs.

I have named the class as Let's see some examples of usage of our class.

I guess that's why the threadstarter is asking for a client-side solution which I think makes a lot of sense.

Hi Experts, I am working on ASP.net2.0 using C# There is a functionality to upload files.

But in recent years, the HTML5 is doing wonders, it comes with many features including the client-side file objects manipulation (File API).

Which means no more 3rd party plug-ins such as flash or Java applets. Here's what I did to an upload form that uses j Query.

As in the above code, I have created the method // validate an integer $number = Input::int($_POST['number']); // validate a string $name = Input::str($_POST['name']); // convert to boolean $bool = Input::bool($_POST['boolean']); // validate an email $email = Input::email($_POST['email']); // validate a URL $url = Input::url($_POST['url']); function was described with it's filters with examples.

This tutorial gained your knowledge on validating emails, URLs, integers, booleans and more.

It will always return false, since there's no way to actually validate the input.
