Blackberry Browser support for html input tag with file attribute.

Hi and thanks in advance.

 

I have a blackberry with version 4.2.2 of the sw and it support the html input tag with the file attribute.

 

When I upgrade the BB version to 4.5.0, it won't support it.

 

What happens?

The Browse button is grayed out and not operational.

 

Thanks.

Re: Blackberry Browser support for html input tag with file attribute.

your webpage is approximately HTML valid so the problem is not there.
I don't have a 4.5 browser available, but the button works fine on a 4.7 browser.

I'm seeing the same issue.  When testing a web page I have with an input file field on the 8120 & 8320 (4.5) device simulators, it disables the 'Browse...' button and won't allow file selection.  It works fine on 4.6 and 4.7 from what I can tell.  Anyone know why?

Re: Blackberry Browser support for html input tag with file attribute.

Also the BB Browser 4.2 Content Developer Guide states:

 

The following input types are not supported: • type="file" type="button"

...but type="file" clearly works on 4.6 and 4.6 platforms.  Not sure why.

I am certain it's because 4.2 is different from 4.6 Smiley Happy
