By using this i will get a browse box and a browse button . the moment i browse the image , i will get the path in the browse box.

what i want is the moment the path comes in the area then automatically the preview of the image should come in the specified area or there itself. how can i do it. i 've got few scripts in net but they are of no use. i am using firefox.

i want to see the preview of the image before i upload it to the database.

-thank you

off the bat ... try this;



Also, in above code, did you ensure that you're getting the "file" when you click on it? because on the snippet provided to you above I see that file path is non-relative ...

I don't think that JavaScript has access to the contents of a file upload field for security reasons, so this may not be possible.

It is impossible to do it with today's browser security settings. If you want to do a preview you need to use Flash or an Applet OR upload it to a temp section on your server.
