INPUT:FILE doesn't fill in Chrome

Post by Skello » Tue Sep 28, 2010 9:19 pm


I have a form where I need to select a file for upload.

The element is <input type="file" name="input[restore][4]">

In iMacros for Firefox I use:

Code: Select all

TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:FILE ATTR=NAME:input[restore][4] CONTENT=C:\Users\Haha\Desktop\test-file.txt
and it works as it's supposed to. The file name is inputed into the field and then I can hit upload.

However, in iMacros for Chrome, the same form, the exact same code, doesn't work. The field remains with "No file chosen" displayed into it.

I'm using Chrome 6.0.472.63 and iMacros for Chrome 3.0.2 Beta

Any suggestions or ideas of why it doesn't work would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello Skello,

The ability to handle dialogs has not yet been implemented in iMacros for Chrome since this feature requires updates to the Chrome extensions API before we can implement it. ... imitations
