Hi, I have a question about setting the value (to empty string, or anything) of the file input path. I was thinking it worked as the same way as a text field, but it's not. The value is not changed. So is there any trick to do that with the <input type="file" >?

Thanks a lot!

This might do it....

document.formName.elementName.reset();

This works, but is there any way other than that? Since reset() will clear everything in the form. Is there any way that I can reset only the file upload field?

Thanks a lot.

Create your own function that will go through the code, remember what was selected in each element, than do "reset" on form, and restore values.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
