Hi everyone,

I have a requirement saying that the text field in <t:inputFileUpload> should be disabled.

So a user should not be able to manually enter the path of a file. This works without any modification in firefox. Upon clicking the text box a browse window appears. However in IE6 and IE7 this is not happening. Manual entry is possible.

Can someone help me to fix this please.

Thanks in advance.
