How can i obtain the full local path + filename in a change event of filefield xtype ??

I mean after user have selected a file, i want to know something like that

C:\folder\bla bla\bla \ file name

I want this because i have a form with an image (photo), and when user selects new file image, i want to preview in image object the local computer photo, before to submit and upload the file.

For security reasons, you cannot get the client's file path from the request, only the filename.

What you can do in this case is upload the file to a temporary place and display it for the user; once the user confirms it, you save it on the permanent place.
