Styling file inputs are notoriously difficult, as most browsers will not change the appearance from either CSS or javascript.

Even the size of the input will not respond to the likes of:

<input type="file" style="width:200px">

Instead, you will need to use the size attribute:

<input type="file" size="60" />

For any styling more sophisticated than that (e.g. changing the look of the browse button) you will need to look at the tricksy approach of overlaying a styled button and input box on top of the native file input. The article already mentioned by rm at www.quirksmode.org/dom/inputfile.html is the best one I’ve seen.

UPDATE

Although it’s difficult to style an <input> tag directly, this is easily possible with the help of a <label> tag. See answer below from @JoshCrozier: https://stackoverflow.com/a/25825731/10128619

You don’t need JavaScript for this! Here is a cross-browser solution:

See this example! – It works in Chrome/FF/IE – (IE10/9/8/7)

The best approach would be to have a custom label element with a for attribute attached to a hidden file input element. (The label’s for attribute must match the file element’s id in order for this to work).

<label for="file-upload" class="custom-file-upload">
    Custom Upload
</label>
<input id="file-upload" type="file"/>

As an alternative, you could also just wrap the file input element with a label directly: (example)

<label class="custom-file-upload">
    <input type="file"/>
    Custom Upload
</label>

In terms of styling, just hide1 the input element using the attribute selector.

input[type="file"] {
    display: none;
}

Then all you need to do is style the custom label element. (example).

.custom-file-upload {
    border: 1px solid #ccc;
    display: inline-block;
    padding: 6px 12px;
    cursor: pointer;
}


1 – It’s worth noting that if you hide the element using display: none, it won’t work in IE8 and below. Also be aware of the fact that jQuery validate doesn’t validate hidden fields by default. If either of those things are an issue for you, here are two different methods to hide the input (1, 2) that work in these circumstances.

follow these steps then you can create custom styles for your file upload form:

  1. this is the simple HTML form(please read the HTML comments I have written here below)

    <form action="#type your action here" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
      <div id="yourBtn" style="height: 50px; width: 100px;border: 1px dashed #BBB; cursor:pointer;" onclick="getFile()">Click to upload!</div>
      <!-- this is your file input tag, so i hide it!-->
      <div style='height: 0px;width:0px; overflow:hidden;'><input id="upfile" type="file" value="upload"/></div>
      <!-- here you can have file submit button or you can write a simple script to upload the file automatically-->
      <input type="submit" value='submit' >
    </form>
    
    
  2. then use this simple script to pass the click event to file input tag.

    function getFile(){
         document.getElementById("upfile").click();
    }
    
    

    Now you can use any type of styling without worrying about how to change default styles.

I know this very well because I have been trying to change the default styles for a month and a half. believe me, it’s very hard because different browsers have different upload input tag. So use this one to build your custom file upload forms. Here is the full AUTOMATED UPLOAD code.

function getFile() {
  document.getElementById("upfile").click();
}

function sub(obj) {
  var file = obj.value;
  var fileName = file.split("\\");
  document.getElementById("yourBtn").innerHTML = fileName[fileName.length - 1];
  document.myForm.submit();
  event.preventDefault();
}
#yourBtn {
  position: relative;
  top: 150px;
  font-family: calibri;
  width: 150px;
  padding: 10px;
  -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
  -moz-border-radius: 5px;
  border: 1px dashed #BBB;
  text-align: center;
  background-color: #DDD;
  cursor: pointer;
}
<form action="#type your action here" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="myForm">
  <div id="yourBtn" onclick="getFile()">click to upload a file</div>
  <!-- this is your file input tag, so i hide it!-->
  <!-- i used the onchange event to fire the form submission-->
  <div style='height: 0px;width: 0px; overflow:hidden;'><input id="upfile" type="file" value="upload" onchange="sub(this)" /></div>
  <!-- here you can have file submit button or you can write a simple script to upload the file automatically-->
  <!-- <input type="submit" value='submit' > -->
</form>

Hide it with css and use a custom button with $(selector).click() to activate the the browse button. then set an interval to check the value of the file input type. the interval can display the value for the user so the user can see whats getting uploaded. the interval will clear when the form is submitted [EDIT] Sorry i have been very busy was meaning to update this post, here is an example

<form action="uploadScript.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<div>
    <!-- filename to display to the user -->
    <p id="file-name" class="margin-10 bold-10"></p>

    <!-- Hide this from the users view with css display:none; -->
    <input class="display-none" id="file-type" type="file" size="4" name="file"/>

    <!-- Style this button with type image or css whatever you wish -->
    <input id="browse-click" type="button" class="button" value="Browse for files"/>

    <!-- submit button -->
    <input type="submit" class="button" value="Change"/>
</div>

$(window).load(function () {
    var intervalFunc = function () {
        $('#file-name').html($('#file-type').val());
    };
    $('#browse-click').on('click', function () { // use .live() for older versions of jQuery
        $('#file-type').click();
        setInterval(intervalFunc, 1);
        return false;
    });
});

All rendering engines automatically generate a button when an <input type="file"> is created. Historically, that button has been completely un-styleable. However, Trident and WebKit have added hooks through pseudo-elements.

Trident

As of IE10, the file input button can be styled using the ::-ms-browse pseudo-element. Basically, any CSS rules that you apply to a regular button can be applied to the pseudo-element. For example:

::-ms-browse {
  background: black;
  color: red;
  padding: 1em;
}
<input type="file">

This displays as follows in IE10 on Windows 8:

This displays as follows in IE10 on Windows 8:

WebKit

WebKit provides a hook for its file input button with the ::-webkit-file-upload-button pseudo-element. Again, pretty much any CSS rule can be applied, therefore the Trident example will work here as well:

::-webkit-file-upload-button {
  background: black;
  color: red;
  padding: 1em;
}
<input type="file">

This displays as follows in Chrome 26 on OS X:

HTML

<div class="new_Btn">SelectPicture</div><br>
<input id="html_btn" type='file'" /><br>

CSS

.new_Btn {
// your css propterties
}

#html_btn {
 display:none;
}

jQuery

$('.new_Btn').bind("click" , function () {
        $('#html_btn').click();
    });
//edit: 6/20/2014: Be sure to use ".on" not ".bind" for newer versions of jQuery

Fiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/M7BXC/

You can reach your goals too without jQuery with normal JavaScript.

Now the newBtn is linkes with the html_btn and you can style your new btn like you want 😀

Working example here with native Drag and drop support : https://jsfiddle.net/j40xvkb3/

When styling a file input, you shouldn’t break any of native interaction the input provides.

The display: none approach breaks the native drag and drop support.

To not break anything, you should use the opacity: 0 approach for the input, and position it using relative / absolute pattern in a wrapper.

Using this technique, you can easily style a click / drop zone for the user, and add custom class in javascript on dragenter event to update styles and give user a feedback to let him see that he can drop a file.

HTML :

<label for="test">
  <div>Click or drop something here</div>
  <input type="file" id="test">
</label>

CSS :

input[type="file"] {
  position: absolute;
  left: 0;
  opacity: 0;
  top: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  width: 100%;
}

div {
  position: absolute;
  left: 0;
  top: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  width: 100%;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  background: #ccc;
  border: 3px dotted #bebebe;
  border-radius: 10px;
}

label {
  display: inline-block;
  position: relative;
  height: 100px;
  width: 400px;
}

Here is a working example (with additional JS to handle dragover event and dropped files).

If you are using Bootstrap 3, this worked for me:

See http://www.abeautifulsite.net/whipping-file-inputs-into-shape-with-bootstrap-3/

.btn-file {
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
}
.btn-file input[type=file] {
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  right: 0;
  min-width: 100%;
  min-height: 100%;
  font-size: 100px;
  text-align: right;
  filter: alpha(opacity=0);
  opacity: 0;
  outline: none;
  background: white;
  cursor: inherit;
  display: block;
}
<link href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/twitter-bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

<span class="btn btn-primary btn-file">

Which produces the following file input button:

You can wrap your input type=”file” inside of a label for the input. Style the label however you’d like and hide the input with display: none;

Here is a solution which doesn’t really style the <input type="file" /> element but instead uses a <input type="file" /> element on top of other elements (which can be styled). The <input type="file" /> element is not really visible hence, the overall illusion is of a nicely styled file upload control.

I came across this problem recently and despite the plethora of answers on Stack Overflow, none really seemed to fit the bill. In the end, I ended up customizing this so as to have a simple and an elegant solution.

I have also tested this on Firefox, IE (11, 10 & 9), Chrome and Opera, iPad and a few android devices.

Here’s the JSFiddle link -> http://jsfiddle.net/umhva747/

$('input[type=file]').change(function(e) {
    $in = $(this);
    $in.next().html($in.val());
    
});

$('.uploadButton').click(function() {
    var fileName = $("#fileUpload").val();
    if (fileName) {
        alert(fileName + " can be uploaded.");
    }
    else {
        alert("Please select a file to upload");
    }
});
body {
    background-color:Black;
}

div.upload {
    background-color:#fff;
    border: 1px solid #ddd;
    border-radius:5px;
    display:inline-block;
    height: 30px;
    padding:3px 40px 3px 3px;
    position:relative;
    width: auto;
}

div.upload:hover {
    opacity:0.95;
}

div.upload input[type="file"] {
    display: input-block;
    width: 100%;
    height: 30px;
    opacity: 0;
    cursor:pointer;
    position:absolute;
    left:0;
}
.uploadButton {
    background-color: #425F9C;

Put upload file button over your nice button or element and hide it.

Very simple and will work on any browser

<div class="upload-wrap">
    <button type="button" class="nice-button">upload_file</button>
    <input type="file" name="file" class="upload-btn">
</div>

Styles

.upload-wrap {
    position: relative;
}

.upload-btn {
    position: absolute;
    left: 0;
    opacity: 0;
}

This is simple with jquery. To give a code example of Ryan‘s suggestion with a slight modification.

Basic html:

<div id="image_icon"></div>
<div id="filename"></div>
<input id="the_real_file_input" name="foobar" type="file">

Be sure to set the styling on the input when you’re ready: opacity: 0 You can’t set display: none because it needs to be clickable. But you can position it under the “new” button or tuck in under something else with z-index if you prefer.

Setup some jquery to click the real input when you click the image.

$('#image_icon').click(function() {
    $('#the_real_file_input').click();
});

Now your button is working. Just cut and paste the value when changed.

$('input[type=file]').bind('change', function() {
    var str = "";
    str = $(this).val();
    $("#filename").text(str);
}).change();

Tah dah! You may need to parse the val() to something more meaningful but you should be all set.

the only way i can think of is to find the button with javascript after it gets rendered and assign a style to it

VISIBILITY:hidden TRICK

I usually go for the visibility:hidden trick

this is my styled button

<div id="uploadbutton" class="btn btn-success btn-block">Upload</div>

this is the input type=file button. Note the visibility:hidden rule

<input type="file" id="upload" style="visibility:hidden;">

this is the JavaScript bit to glue them together. It works

<script>
 $('#uploadbutton').click(function(){
    $('input[type=file]').click();
 });
 </script>

This approach gives you the whole flexibility! ES6 / VanillaJS!

html:

<input type="file" style="display:none;"></input>
<button>Upload file</button>

javascript:

document.querySelector('button').addEventListener('click', () => {
  document.querySelector('input[type="file"]').click();
});

This hides the input-file button, but under the hood clicks it from another normal button, that you can obviously style like any other button. This is the only solution with no downside apart from a useless DOM-node. Thanks to display:none;, the input-button does not reserve any visible space in the DOM.

(I don’t know anymore to whom to give props for this. But I got that idea from somewhere here on Stackoverflow.)

<input type="file" name="media" style="display-none" onchange="document.media.submit()">

I would normally use simple javascript to customize the file input tag.A hidden input field,on click of button,javascript call the hidden field,simple solution with out any css or bunch of jquery.

<button id="file" onclick="$('#file').click()">Upload File</button>

The Answer 19

Here we use a span to trigger input of type file and we simply customized that span, so we can add any styling using this way.

Note that we use input tag with visibility:hidden option and trigger it in the span.

.attachFileSpan{
color:#2b6dad;
cursor:pointer;
}
.attachFileSpan:hover{
text-decoration: underline;
}
<h3> Customized input of type file </h3>
<input id="myInput" type="file" style="visibility:hidden"/>

        <span title="attach file" class="attachFileSpan" onclick="document.getElementById('myInput').click()">
        Attach file
        </span>

This is a nice way to do it with material / angular file upload. You could do the same with a bootstrap button.

Note I used <a> instead of <button> this allows the click events to bubble up.

<label>
    <input type="file" (change)="setFile($event)" style="display:none" />

    <a mat-raised-button color="primary">
      <mat-icon>file_upload</mat-icon>

Multiple file solution with converted filename

Bootstrap EXAMPLE

HTML:

<div>
  <label class="btn btn-primary search-file-btn">
    <input name="file1" type="file" style="display:None;"> <span>Choose file</span>
  </label>
  <span>No file selected</span>
</div>

<div>
  <label class="btn btn-primary search-file-btn">
    <input name="file2" type="file" style="display:None;"> <span>Choose file</span>
  </label>
  <span>No file selected</span>
</div>

1. JS with jQuery:

$().ready(function($){
    $('.search-file-btn').children("input").bind('change', function() {
    var fileName = '';
    fileName = $(this).val().split("\\").slice(-1)[0];
    $(this).parent().next("span").html(fileName);
  })
});

2. JS without jQuery

Array.prototype.forEach.call(document.getElementsByTagName('input'), function(item) {
  item.addEventListener("change", function() {
    var fileName = '';
    fileName = this.value.split("\\").slice(-1)[0];
    this.parentNode.nextElementSibling.innerHTML = fileName;

Don’t be fooled by “great” CSS-only solutions that are actually very browser-specific, or that overlay the styled button on top of the real button, or that force you to use a <label> instead of a <button>, or any other such hack. JavaScript IS necessary to get it working for general usage. Please study how gmail and DropZone do it if you don’t believe me.

Just style a normal button however you want, then call a simple JS function to create and link a hidden input element to your styled button.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta charset="utf-8">

<style>
    button {
        width            : 160px;
        height           : 30px;
        font-size        : 13px;
        border           : none;
        text-align       : center;
        background-color : #444;
        color            : #6f0;
    }
    button:active {
        background-color : #779;
    }
</style>

<button id="upload">Styled upload button!</button>

<script>

function Upload_On_Click(id, handler) {
    var hidden_input = null;
    document.getElementById(id).onclick = function() {hidden_input.click();}
    function setup_hidden_input() {
        hidden_input &amp;&amp; hidden_input.parentNode.removeChild(hidden_input);
        hidden_input = document.createElement("input");
        hidden_input.setAttribute("type", "file");
        hidden_input.style.visibility = "hidden";
        document.querySelector("body").appendChild(hidden_input);
        hidden_input.onchange = function() {
            handler(hidden_input.files[0]);
            setup_hidden_input();
        };
    }
    setup_hidden_input();
}

Upload_On_Click("upload", function(file) {
    console.log("GOT FILE: " + file.name);
});

</script>

Notice how the above code re-links it after every time the user chooses a file. This is important because “onchange” is only called if the user changes the filename. But you probably want to get the file every time the user provides it.

Here is a solution, that also shows the chosen file name: http://jsfiddle.net/raft9pg0/1/

HTML:

<label for="file-upload" class="custom-file-upload">Chose file</label>
<input id="file-upload" type="file"/>
File: <span id="file-upload-value">-</span>

JS:

$(function() {
    $("input:file[id=file-upload]").change(function() {
        $("#file-upload-value").html( $(this).val() );
    });
});

CSS:

input[type="file"] {
    display: none;
}

.custom-file-upload {
      background: #ddd;
      border: 1px solid #aaa;
      border-top: 1px solid #ccc;

This week I also needed to custom the button and display the selected file name aside it, so after reading some of the answers above (Thanks BTW) I came up with the following implementation:

HTML:

<div class="browse">
<label id="uploadBtn" class="custom-file-upload">Choose file
<input type="file" name="fileInput" id="fileInput" accept=".yaml" ngf-select ngf-change="onFileSelect($files)" />
</label>
<span>{{fileName}}</span>
</div>

CSS

   input[type='file'] {
    color: #a1bbd5;
    display: none;

}

.custom-file-upload {
    border: 1px solid #a1bbd5;
    display: inline-block;
    padding: 2px 8px;
    cursor: pointer;
}

label{
    color: #a1bbd5;
    border-radius: 3px;
}

Javascript (Angular)

app.controller('MainCtrl', function($scope) {

        $scope.fileName = 'No file chosen';

          $scope.onFileSelect = function ($files) {
          $scope.selectedFile = $files;
          $scope.fileName = $files[0].name;
    };
});

Basically I’m working with ng-file-upload lib, Angular-wise I’m binding the filename to my $scope and giving it the initial value of ‘No file chosen’, I’m also binding the onFileSelect() function to my scope so when a file gets selected I’m getting the filename using ng-upload API and assign it to the $scope.filename.

Simply simulate a click on the <input> by using the trigger() function when clicking on a styled <div>. I created my own button out of a <div> and then triggered a click on the input when clicking my <div>. This allows you to create your button however you want because it’s a <div> and simulates a click on your file <input>. Then use display: none on your <input>.

// div styled as my load file button
<div id="simClick">Load from backup</div>

<input type="file" id="readFile" />

// Click function for input
$("#readFile").click(function() {
    readFile();
});

// Simulate click on the input when clicking div
$("#simClick").click(function() {
    $("#readFile").trigger("click");
});

The best way is using the pseudo element :after or :before as an element overt the de input. Then style that pseudo element as you wish. I recomend you to do as a general style for all input files as follows:

input {
  height: 0px;
  outline: none;
}

input[type="file"]:before {
  content: "Browse";
  background: #fff;
  width: 100%;
  height: 35px;
  display: block;
  text-align: left;
  position: relative;
  margin: 0;
  margin: 0 5px;
  left: -6px;
  border: 1px solid #e0e0e0;
  top: -1px;
  line-height: 35px;
  color: #b6b6b6;
  padding-left: 5px;
  display: block;
}

The best way I have found is having an input type: file then setting it to display: none. Give it an id. Create a button or any other element you want to open the file input.

Then add an event listener on it (button) which when clicked simulates a click on the original file input. Like clicking a button named hello but it opens a file window.

Example code

//i am using semantic ui

<button class="ui circular icon button purple send-button" id="send-btn">
      <i class="paper plane icon"></i>
    </button>
  <input type="file" id="file" class="input-file" />

javascript

var attachButton=document.querySelector('.attach-button');
    attachButton.addEventListener('click', e=>{
        $('#file').trigger("click")
    })

css can do a lot here… with a little trickery…

<div id='wrapper'>
  <input type='file' id='browse'>
</div>

#wrapper {
     width: 93px; /*play with this value */
     height: 28px; /*play with this value */
     background: url('browseBtn.png') 0 0 no-repeat;
     border:none;
     overflow:hidden;
}

#browse{
     margin-left:-145px; /*play with this value */
     opacity:0; /* set to .5 or something so you can better position it as an overlay then back to zero again after you're done */
     -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=0)";
     filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=0);
}

I’ve found a very easy method to switch the file button to a picture. You just label a picture and place it on top of the file button.

<html>
<div id="File button">
    <div style="position:absolute;">
        <!--This is your labeled image-->
        <label for="fileButton"><img src="ImageURL"></label>
    </div>
    <div>
        <input type="file" id="fileButton"/>
    </div>
</div>
</html>

When clicking on the labeled image, you select the file button.
