firstly I'm new here and my English is not perfect but I think it is not important :)
I have web page where user can upload file. He can select which file to upload with standard HTML input of type file.
I want to add this feature:
when user select some file (e.g. picture, pdf etc.) in file select dialog, I want to add link to selected local file. When user click on it browser(maybe associated application) should open local file so user can review what he selected.
I was experimenting with urls with "file" protocol but it works only with html file located on local computer not for one on web server. I found that this is because of security restriction in browsers.
Can anybody help me please how to open local files or have anybody found idea how to add similar solution?
Thank you for help :)
