View Full Version : Can we do Multiple File Selection and Open in IE8 and IE 9?

Hi All,

I'm trying to implement a file open feature using ExtJS 4.2.
What I observed is, in IE 8 and IE 9 I can't select Multiple files to open.

Please let me know, whether Can we open multiple files in IE 8 and IE 9?

If not, does IE 10 supports selecting and opening multiple files?

Please suggest.

Are you talking about multiple file upload?

If not, can you post the code that works outside of IE8 and IE9 so we can better see what is going on?

Thanks for the link.
I wanted to confirm whether we can select 2 or more files when we browse. Actually in IE 8 and IE 9, we can select only 1 file at a time. IE 10 and later versions allow multiple selection of file.

I would also like to know, if there is a way in which we can select multiple files and send to server for processing just by using some button like "Open".

In other words, I want to achieve the multiple file upload functionality just by using a button and not by using a form and then submitting a form. Is there a way to it.?

Please suggest...

Have you tried using the change event to submit the form?

Thanks for your reply. Yes I tried selecting multiple files and sending using form. I wanted to achieve the same just by using a button. As of now I'm adding a button on the form and then doing it.

I dont see any config properties like 'multiple: true' or something like this to take multiple files as input.

As of now, I'm altering a dom property like this

In this way I can select multiple files. Only thing is after I select multiple files once, the value for 'multiple' under fileInputEl.dom becomes 'false'. So every time I've to set multiple=true by executing above statement.

Is this the right approach to do it.? Please suggest.
