FileChooser class

File choosers let you react to the page requesting for a file.


export declare class FileChooser


FileChooser instances are returned via the Page.waitForFileChooser() method.

In browsers, only one file chooser can be opened at a time. All file choosers must be accepted or canceled. Not doing so will prevent subsequent file choosers from appearing.

The constructor for this class is marked as internal. Third-party code should not call the constructor directly or create subclasses that extend the FileChooser class.


const [fileChooser] = await Promise.all([
page.waitForFileChooser(),'#upload-file-button'), // some button that triggers file selection
await fileChooser.accept(['/tmp/myfile.pdf']);


accept(paths)Accept the file chooser request with the given file paths.
cancel()Closes the file chooser without selecting any files.
isMultiple()Whether file chooser allow for multiple file selection.
