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"> styling! 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.
