    Need advice on user interface

    Alex Cougarman Apprentice

      Hi. I'm designing a page with a JSF/Seam form. The user needs to select the filename and path of a file on the network but doesn't need to upload. We just use the path and filename info later to process the internal user's request.

      However, Safari and some other modern browsers will not display the path of the selected filename for security reasons. What's the best way to let the user select the file/path info? Some users have IE 6 + 7, which lets them select and display file + path.

      Should I have an input type=file along with an open textbox if they don't see the path echoed back? Thanks.
