Sep 3, 2015
Introduction

Here I will explain how to open file upload dialog on button click or image in
jQuery or show upload button to upload images instead of file upload control in jQuery with example. To show file upload dialog box on button click in jQuery we need to hide file upload control and enable upload control click on button click.

Description:
  
In previous articles I explained
jQuery load more records on button click in repeater, jQuery show asp.net exception message in ajax calls, jQuery check whether radiobutton selected or not, jQuery get radio button selected value by name, jQuery validate radiobuttonlist with example and many articles relating to css, AngularJS, jQuery, JavaScript and asp.net. Now I will explain how to use jQuery to open file upload dialog box on button click or image with example.

To open file upload dialog box on button click in jQuery we need to write the code like as shown below


<input style="display:none" type="file" id="fileupload1" />
<input type="button" class="button" id="btnUpload" onclick='$("#fileupload1").click()' value="Upload"/>

If you want to check it in complete example you need to write the code like as shown below


<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>jQuery Show upload button instead of file upload</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.2.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
$("#fileupload1").change(function () {
$("#spnName").html($("#fileupload1").val().substring($("#fileupload1").val().lastIndexOf('\\') + 1));
});
});
</script>
<style type="text/css">
.button {
background: #333;
color: #fff;
padding: 10px 15px;
