Access is Denied error when uploading a file
Posted on 2003-10-29
When developing this file-upload form, I did not run into this problem. I was able to upload files no problem. When I wanted to change the looks and feel of the input file section, I begain recieving this error. Here are the pieces that I am more concern about:
document.fileupload.fakefile.value = document.fileupload.file.value;
--in the HTML section--
<form name="fileupload" enctype="multipart/form-data" action="process.asp" method="post" id="fileupload">
<input class="inputReadOnlyFields" type="text" name="fakefile" id="fakefile" />
<span id="browseButton" class="textAsLinks" onclick="fileButtonClick()">Browse</span>
<input type="file" name="file" id="file" style="visibility:hidden" />
For debugging purposes, I put two types of submitting items:
<span id="submitButton" class="textAsLinks" onclick="document.fileupload.submit()">Submit</span>
These two react differently (that is why I'm bringing it up). The first one (text) return the access is denied error. The other (the button) just clears out the text in the file field, but does nothing to the fakefile text. If I hit the submit button again, right afterwards, the form is submitted but with no file.
If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated!
