Hi Ranchers
I made a jsp file in which i am using HTML file attribute like
<input type=file name=dir>
Now when i click on this button it opens a window which shows various file inthat directory . i select a ".xsd" file.
But I want that window should show only files with ".xsd" extension. Not other files.So what i hav to do so.

You can add the accept attribute like accept="image/jpeg" but I am not 100% sure that all browsers support this. Be sure and check the file extension either in JavaScript and/or the server side code as well to be safe.
