CSS and Form Buttons
How do I apply CSS to the "Browse" form button? (The "Browse" button displays when an
input field is used on a form. The input field allows a visitor to upload a file; the
browse button allows them to browse their own harddrive to locate the file they plan to
upload.) I can apply CSS properly to the "Submit" button and it looks great. However,
when I try to apply it to the "Browse" button, it turns the entire text box area the same
color as the button ... it seems to be applying the CSS to the button and the text box
together. I want only the button to pick up the CSS style.
You cannot apply CSS to the browse button of the input field of the file type - just to
the text field. This special browse button is called up from the underlying operating system.
If you call up the page in a German browser it will show "Durchsuchen" in a matching width -
you can't change the text either. In your case it looks as if the css border declaration is
applied to the browse button because it seems to sit "inside" the text field. Some
information concerning this can be found at
