select file using browse in a form not working

Posted 20 March 2009 - 11:27 AM

I have tried to select a file using forms, file select but the popup box does not show in IE only FireFox

has anyone had this and know of a fix to have it show in IE
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<head>
<title></title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>
<body bgcolor="#000000">
		  <table width="100%">
			<tr>
			  <td width="1" valign="top" bgcolor="#CCCCCC"></td>
			  <td width="100%" valign="top"><form action="" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
				  No file uploaded
				  <input type="file" name="imgfile">
				  <input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="40000">
				  <input name="submit" type="submit" value="Upload">
				</form></td>
			</tr>
		  </table>
</body>
</html>

This appears to work fine in both browsers. I don't see why it wouldn't work in both browsers, the file element here is part of standard HTML and nothing special. You are not doing any rocket science here.

Tested on Vista Ultimate 64bit, all up to date, Firefox 3.0.8 and IE (64bit and 32bit). Works fine for me.
