Extract Input Type File info with jQuery

Hi Experts,

I have an array of <input type="file" name="file[]" id="file[]">, and I am wondering how can I extract the name and size of the selected files?

So far I have the below, and for the first file, file[0], I need to get
name = "test - Copy.txt"
size = 16

As you will you will see from my output

Is it a single control, can you show me the design of your control how it is place on the form?

You can give a try like this

$("input[name=file1]").change(function() {
    var size = [];
    for (var i = 0; i < $(this).get(0).files.length; ++i) {

Open in new window
