Thread: Ext.form.field.File - Bring up file upload screen from function.

    Default Ext.form.field.File - Bring up file upload screen from function.

    Hello all,

    I need to bring up the file upload screen provided by Ext.form.field.File from a function, however have been stuck on this for a while.

    I presume my function needs to call that the same function used as when a user clicks on the browse button in the fileUploader, however I can't find the function to do this.

    Any help would be much apreciated.

    my.fileUploader = Ext.create('Ext.form.field.File', {

    border: false,
    buttonOnly: true,
    xtype: 'filefield',
    name: 'photo',
    fieldLabel: 'Photo',
    labelWidth: 200,
    msgTarget: 'side',
    allowBlank: false,
    hideLabel: true,
    anchor: '100%',
    listeners: {
    'change': function (button, value) {



    Unfortunately I can not see this in the documentation anywhere and have spent the last few hours searching the web for a solution.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    The browser imposes a limit to what you can do with a file input field.
