Description Damian Jansen 2013-07-31 01:37:33 EDT
Description of problem:
If you give a user a line edit to enter a file path, don't give them:
- a dialog to select a file, they are expecting to type
- a browse button if you go with the line edit selector
It's not very usable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Easy always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Projects->Select a Project->select a Version
2. Press Source Documents, Upload Document
3. Click on the Upload dialog line edit

Actual results:
A dialog appears

Expected results:
Nothing, I should be allowed to type here

Additional info:
There seems to be a horrid focus battle at play here too - WebDriver can happily enter the text a user cannot, but the text from the linedit is ignored anyway and the exception of bug990373 occurs.

Edit: scratch the additional info - it's a different exception!

This is the standard file upload element provided by the browser, so will differ a bit from browser to browser. Overriding the behaviour and style of this particluar element is somewhat hacky and is not straightforward, but would be nice to do if we find a stable and maintainable way to do so.
