How to Create an Inline Masked File Upload Form with CSS3 and HTML5

Try Semtex – the new HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript UI framework!

The post for today is not something really special or super amazing. It’s just a quick and dirty trick that I use when I have to create inline forms for selecting files in which the actual input is hidden, and users click some text node (link, button, etc) that opens the browse for file dialog, which I wanted to share with you.

The Markup:

<div class="css3-inline-file-input">
    <form action="./" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" name="form-01">
        <input type="file" accept="image/jpg, image/jpeg, image/gif, image/png, image/bmp" name="form-01-file" /><span>Choose File</span>

The CSS:

.css3-inline-file-input *
    display: inline-block;

.css3-inline-file-input *
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    border: 0;

.css3-inline-file-input form
    position: relative;

.css3-inline-file-input input
    position: absolute;
    right: 0;
    cursor: pointer;

    filter: alpha(opacity=0); /* opacity fix IE6/7/8 */
    -moz-opacity: 0; /* opacity fix for older Firefox */
    -webkit-opacity: 0 /* opacity fix for older Chrome */;
    opacity: 0;

    width: auto;
    vertical-align: top;
    overflow: hidden;

.css3-inline-file-input span
    display: block;
    text-align: center;
    text-decoration: underline;

.css3-inline-file-input input:hover + span
    text-decoration: none;

/* fixes for IE6/7 */
* html .css3-inline-file-input,
* html .css3-inline-file-input *,
* + html .css3-inline-file-input,
* + html .css3-inline-file-input *
    display: inline;

Older versions of Internet Explorer do not fire the onchange event on elements, hidden with CSS display: none or visibility: hidden, but instead an exception is thrown. This is why I used opacity: 0 and position: absolute to hide he original input.

You can check and download the demo on this page.

Enjoy the rest of the day!
