Re-fill upload field - alexh - May 10th, 2011


I have scoured the forums and documentation with no luck.

Is there a way to re-fill an upload box? For instance, I have a form with two file upload boxes... but if you get the Captcha wrong, it re-fills everything except for those two boxes. My concern is that someone won't realize it and hit send a second time without adding those files. It's not a required field either, which makes it more difficult!

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the post!

Unfortunately for security reasons, the HTML specification doesn't allow you to re-enter the file in a file upload field, so they'll need to re-enter it. Not ideal, I know.

Sorry about that -
