Subject: print $q->filefield(-name=>'name',-default=>'foo'); does not work correctly
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 219b
rint $q->filefield(-name=>'uploaded_file', -default=>'foo', -size=>40); This will NOT place 'foo' in the filefield box as expected. I am using perl5.6.1 on redhat 6.2. No errors in apache. Thank you!

I don't know whether this response will go to the right place, but the problem is that browsers have stopped accepting default values for file fields due to security concerns. Lincoln On Friday 12 April 2002 18:56, Guest via RT wrote: Show quoted text

Most browsers disabled this feature a long time ago because people were using the default to upload secret files like /etc/passwd
