In this article I will explain with an example, how to use INPUT "type=file" to accept doc docx in HTML.
The following HTML Markup consists of an HTML5 INPUT FileUpload element.
The HTML5 INPUT FileUpload has been set with the following attribute.
accept - This attribute allows user to select only specified type of files from the Choose File dialog box.
Note: It accepts one or more than one file extension with comma-separated value.
For example, in the following code, the HTML5 INPUT FileUpload will only allow user to select Word Documents i.e. files with extension doc and docx.
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<input type="file" accept=".doc, .docx" />
The above code has been tested in the following browsers only in versions that support HTML5.
