Hello All -
That was depressing.
However, continued musings over this challenge gave rise to the possibility that "perhaps" one could write a script that would enable one button to control another button. If this is a possibility, then I've got my solution.
So, the theoretical scenario would be:
1. You've got an <input type=file> element that's been hidden via CSS (display: none).
1a. The id of the file input is set to "fileUpload" (input type="file" id="fileUpload")
2. You've got a visible button within the same form that, when clicked, sends a "click" event to input id "fileUpload".
3. When the file input (id="fileUpload") receives the event, the usual functionality of the file input is triggered (even though this input is hidden) ... e.g. an open dialog appears where the user may select a document to upload.
So... do those of you here in this forum think this ***could*** work? And, if so, could someone guide me on how to write such a script?
Interested in all possibilities, and great appreciation to all in advance!
