Hello, I'm using BlueImp's JQuery File Upload plugin ( and although everything is working properly I don't know how to check if the input has a file. How can I do this?

This is my html:

<span class="btn fileinput-button">
    <i class="icon-camera"></i>
    <input id="filUserNewPostImageUpload" name="file" type="file" />

This is the jquery:

   url: "/userattachment/upload/",
   dataType: "json",
   start: function(e){
   done: function (e, data) {

      if(data.result.result == "success"){
         // This returns an empty string even when a file has been uploaded successfully
