    Restrict Alias file upload in Mac

    Hi All, I am trying to find way to restrict Alias file upload in Mac. Didn't able to find the way...

    User having the option to browse and drag and drop a file for upload. I used html file uploader and javascript API to navigate the selected files and apply the validations. Please help me to solve this !.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. I have no idea on what you mean by restrict alias file upload
    2. you do not provide any code or highlight what the problem is in the code you are using or give any indication of your error
    Yes, I know I'm about as subtle as being hit by a bus..(\\.\ Aug08)
    Yep... I say it like I see it, even if it is like a baseball bat in the nutz... (\\.\ Aug08)
    I want to leave this world the same way I came into it, Screaming, Incontinent & No memory!
    I laughed that hard I burst my colostomy bag... (\\.\ May03)
    Life for some is like a car accident... Mine is like a motorway pile up...

    Hi, Thank you for reply.

    Here is my complete requirement.

    a. Having file upload form with capturing of the browse file and drag&drop feature. ( It allows all mime types of files )
    b. Uploaded file later can be viewed with Brava viewer.

    With this user allows to create a Alias to existing file and upload to the system. With Alias it will allow to view the file.

    Basically when user tries to upload a Alias file, it should reject.

    document.getElementById('files').addEventListener('change', fileSelect, false);

    function fileSelect(event){
    var filesSelected;
    if(event instanceof MouseEvent){
    filesSelected = event.dataTransfer.files
    }
    else{
    filesSelected = event.target.files; // FileList object
    }

    // Here can't able to differentiate the File object of original and Alias to write condition.

    // Looking for solution to identify selected file is a Alias or not, if yes show error message.
    }

    Hope i explained the problem, looking forward for some suggestion. Thanks in advance.

    When a browser requests a page, the browser information is readily available to you so you can classify what browser is in use.

    If you mean you want the whole file path and not the browser alias, you can not get that kind of access.
