How to remove or change the fakepath folder location when using a File Upload form control

Article # 3040727 - Page views: 2075


At runtime, when using a File Upload form control, the word fakepath replaces the actual file upload folder location followed by the actual uploaded filename.



This is a security feature of the browser.  This is designed so the File Upload control does not expose the real file location from your system.

Therefore this is a browser feature and completely irrelevant to KTA.



KTA has no way of changing/overriding this feature.  Google searches for 'fakepath' will show other software applications outside of KTA report the same behavior.
