Hi,
I  added a "Browse" button to an HTML.
I want to implement the loadFile function in java-script.
I wrote
function loadFile() {
  txtFileName.value = 'file:///' + document.data.cmuds.value;
  txtFileName.focus();
}
but I receive an error:
document.data.cmuds.value is null or not an object.
Here is the entire HTML.

<!-- based on insimage.dlg -->

I don't understand the question. It is in the loadFile function.
Just search for loadFile in the HTML.

Some suggestions :-
1.Encapsulate the all the elements within a <form> tag named data as <form name="data"> ... </form>
2. Replace "<button ID=btnBrowse" to "<input type=file id=btnBrowse" . Having done so the separate textbox for file name is redundant
3.Prepend all form elements in the script to document.data.
For eg: txtFileName to document.data.txtFileName
4.The function loadFile is unnecessary as document.data.btnBrowse.value would yield you the file name.

Hi,

I don't understand what you say.
This is an HTML that is part of the "htmlarea 2.03", so i cann;t do all these changes.
I just wanted to add a "Browse" button, that insert the file path to the textFileName (instead of the URL).
I don't understand what is "'file:///' + document.data.cmuds.value", i just found it in google in a script that opens a "Open-File" dialog.

For that, Jaax's point 2 is what you need.

No, it does not do it.
The way I did with the <button
is OK, it shows the Browse button and when I click on the button it calls the loadFile function.
The problem is that I don't know how to open the Browse (Open-File) dialog-box is JS and I don't know how to get the selected file's path.

<input type = 'file'

works. Unless you did it the wrong way. Here is an example:
