fileInput(inputId, label, multiple = FALSE, accept = NULL, width = NULL)
Arguments
inputId
The input slot that will be used to access the value.
label
Display label for the control, or NULL for no label.
multiple
Whether the user should be allowed to select and upload multiple files at once. Does not work on older browsers, including Internet Explorer 9 and earlier.
