Hello,

I am developing a form and one the fields that I have is a filefield that the user can use to browse computer and upload a  file. I would like to make the width wider, so that the path displays without being cutoff. I tried in css as well as inline css and seems to work in IE, but not in firefox. Is there a workaround for this or would it be possible to replicate the functionality using javascript, a text field and a button. I am a newbie to javascript, so if this is able to be replicated please provide code or examples that I can follow...

Thank You

Styling the file upload control can be difficult. Can I suggest something not only more aesthetic, but user friendly?
