  • Last Updated : 18 Jan, 2019

The File.name property is an inbuilt function of File WebAPI which gives the name of the file represented by a file object. The path of file is excluded from this property for security reasons.

Syntax:

var name = file.name;

Return Value: It returns a string, containing the name of the file without path.

Example:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>
            WebAPI File.name Property
        </title>
          
        <style>
            #main {
                padding: 10px;
                width: 300px;
                border: 1px solid green;
                text-align:center;
                font-size:22px;
            }
        </style>
    </head>

            <div>file.name</div>
            <input type = "file" multiple onchange
