Subject: Access Denied When Submitting File Upload Posted on: Thu, 17 Mar 2005 02:44:39 +0000 (UTC)
I have a form with an input type='file' element. I click on the Browse
button of my file upload element, select a file, and hit open. The
file name appears in the textbox portion of the file upload element (as
expected). When I submit this form everything works perfectly.
On the same form I have a hyperlink that simulates clicking on the
Browse button of the file upload element. It does this by using the
file upload element's name and the click() method. I click on the
hyperlink and the file dialog box opens as if I had clicked the Browse
button. I select a file and hit open. The file name appears in the
textbox portion of the file upload element - just like it should. BUT
"Access is Denied". The error is not on the next page, it's on this
page - that is, the form never actually gets submitted and processed.
There can be no doubt that this is a client-side error.
. Does anyone have any ideas? It's really important that I
can launch the file open dialog box from a hyperlink.
