Hi,
Anybody tried to give the customized "Browse" image for the file upload control using Struts. I am using FormFile object of the struts for uploading, which is not allowing me to attach my own "Browse" image. This is just to keep the uniform user interface, because I have some other "Browse" buttons in that page. Any help is very much appreciated.
Thanks,
sai kinnera

I have faced to this issue before. However, after several searching from the web, our conclusion is, we CANNOT customerize the Browse button if we make use of the tag <input type="file" ... >.

One article from Microsoft mentions that, in IE 4, we can use a gif as browse button. When this button is clicked, it invoke a JS to set the value of the file. However, this *property* is intentionally disabled in IE 5 and later versions due to the security issues. Netscape has disabled this feature as well. Thus, we have no way to customize the browse button.
