<FORM> and <INPUT type=FILE> WOES!!!

Is there any way to have the <input type=file> "browse" button take in a users filename and on submission it doesn't upload the file right away. But at a later time (on another form) i can set the <input type=file> to what the user set  previously and have it automatically upload then?

Well, I don't think you aren going to like the answer.  Input type=file is a strange input type because it can have so many security problems.  So for these reasons you can't access the value of or set the value of the input field in JavaScript (of course HTML has no control of these things either).  Perhaps VBScript or ActiveX will let you but those are IE only.

So since this value can't be read or written, you can't save it's value or defer it until later.

Sorry,
Josh
