I have a page that allows a user to upload an image.  After they have submitted the form, the page refreshes w/  a message that their file has been uploaded.

I want the file name that they user uploaded to appear in the input field.  

How can i get the file name to appear in the input field?

Thank you

I'm pretty sur eyou cannot do this with CF, I have never tried it with JavaScript, but I'm not sure whether the input type"file" has an attribute called value...

Normally you list the uploaded file above the form field.
