  • Last Updated : 27 Dec, 2021

BlueprintJS is a React-based UI toolkit for the web. This library is very optimized and popular for building interfaces that are complex data-dense for desktop applications. 
FileInput Component provides a way for users to upload files to our application. We can use the following approach in ReactJS to use the ReactJS Blueprint FileInput Component.

FileInput Props:

  • buttonText: It is used to denote the button text.
  • disabled: It is used to indicate whether the file input is non-interactive or not.
  • fill: It is used to indicate whether the file input should take up the full width of its container or not.
  • hasSelection: It is used to indicate whether the user has made a selection in the input or not.
  • inputProps: It is used to denote the props to pass to the child input.
  • large: It is used to indicate whether the file input should appear with large styling or not.
  • onInputChange: It is a callback function that is triggered on <input> change events.
  • text: It is used to denote the text to display.
