Getting an upload stream and manipulate it
Dear Web Developers
I am facing a rather interesting problem. I have a form with a file upload field. When you hit submit the file should be manipulated by the client browser and not sent to the server (!). This is important. No file transfer to the Server. After the manipulation the file should be presented as download-able to the client. Which means it is stored from the browser to the client filesystem.
Thank you in advance.
Thread says the same thing, absolutely no cross browser method available - IE only (and poorly at that with the security warnings).
hey guys. looks promising. thank you for the fast replies. I'll check out the urls. thank you
I took a look at a few of the URL's Kor, and I couldn't find (but I may have easily missed) how to manipulate the contents of a file on the client's computer without uploading the file.
I know an alternative solution would be to request the client to copy and paste the contents of a file (if it's ascii) and manipulate it like that, but how can you access the clients filesystem, even with HTML5?
Just saw this link, which may be useful to the OP as well:
Keep in mind this is not nearly a cross browser solution either as this makes use of cutting-edge web technology which is still early in implementation.
