The task is to get the file input by selected filename without the path using jQuery. To select the file we will use HTML <input type=”file”>. After that we will get the file name by using the jQuery change() method. This method is used in the JQuery to get the file input by selected file name. And the HTML <input type=”file”> is used to specify the file select field and add a button to choose a file for upload to the form.
Below examples illustrates the approach:
Example 1: In this example we will display the file name with the extension by using the change() method and the file will be selected by the HTML <input type=”file”>.
Example 2: In this example we will display the filename with the extension through an alert, by using the change() method and the file will be selected by the HTML <input type=”file”>.
