jQuery Mobile - Textinput File


The file type attribute allows the users to upload files to the server of MIME type. An uploaded file could be a text file or image file or any document.


Following example demonstrates the use of file input in the jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>
         <h2>File Input Example</h2>
         <label for = "src">File Input</label>
         <input type = "file" id = "src" data-clear-btn = "false">

         <label for = "src1">Clear the File Field</label>
         <input type = "file" data-clear-btn = "true" id = "src1">


Let's carry out the following steps to see how the above code works −
