Hi All,
Does anyone know if it is possible to populate a browse button with a value? I have tried "value=" but it doesn't seem to do anything. Thanks!

If you are talking about a "file" input element, you can not set the value. Reason is how would you like someone changing it and uploading your email, backups, operating system files, porn videos, etc.

I was afraid you might say that...so even if I just wanted to display the name of a file saved previously ie., abc.doc it won't let me do it? I guess I will just have to display the name of the previous file on the line above. Thanks!

Moved to HTML/Javascript.
