How to Customize File Upload Inputs

This code demo saved my bacon on a client project that needed a very specifically styled file upload input box.

Why would that be difficult? It turns out there’s no default way to override the browser’s <input type="file">┬ástyling! Isn’t that weird?

The key information is in the “Hiding the <input>” and “Styling the <label>” sections. Requires quite a bit of confidence with CSS, but very worth it for beautifully styled and customized file upload inputs.
