How can I Add upload a file functionality in my prototype

I want to simulate choose a file from your computer for uploading.
When user clicks on a link it should open a file dialog for uploading it.
How could this be done?

You can do this by right-clicking a text field widget and setting its input type to “File”.
When you launch the prototype, you’ll see a button to “Choose File” or “Browse” depending on what browser you’re using.

Note that this is just a simulation. Axure can’t really upload the file anywhere


I just clip a screenshot of my system file dialog and put it in a DP pinned center/middle as a lightbox with a transparent background. - Hotspots for OK/Cancel and standard selection behavior for fake file icons if that’s what you’re into.

If you throw the system dialog dp into an [ Upload File ] master button, you can carry the whole kitten kaboodle anywhere in the prototype. Just raise the OK event for unique events triggered per page.

This is what it looks like in one of my prototypes:
