onchange file input change img src and change image color

39

onchange event is not working. What am I supposed to do to get result on same page. I dont want to redirect to any other page to upload image. Is this issue is because of opencart? I dont know if it is correct to write like this in cpanel. I am using opencart and cpanel. Is there any other way?

HTML

 <input type='file' id="upload" onchange="readURL(this.value)" />
    <img id="img" src="#" alt="your image" />

script

function readURL(input) {
var url = input.value;
var ext = url.substring(url.lastIndexOf('.') + 1).toLowerCase();
if (input.files && input.files[0]&& (ext == "gif" || ext == "png" || ext == "jpeg" || ext == "jpg")) {
    var reader = new FileReader();

    reader.onload = function (e) {
        $('#img').attr('src', e.target.result);
    }
    reader.readAsDataURL(input.files[0]);
}
else{
     $('#img').attr('src', '/assets/no_preview.png');
  }
}

You need to send this object only instead of this.value while calling onchange

<input type='file' id="upload" onchange="readURL(this)" />

because you are using input variable as this in your function, like at line

var url = input.value;// reading value property of input element

Working DEMO

EDIT - Try using jQuery like below --

remove onchange from input field :

<input type='file' id="upload" >

Bind onchange event to input field :

$(function(){
  $('#upload').change(function(){
    var input = this;
    var url = $(this).val();
    var ext = url.substring(url.lastIndexOf('.') + 1).toLowerCase();
    if (input.files && input.files[0]&& (ext == "gif" || ext == "png" || ext == "jpeg" || ext == "jpg")) 
     {
        var reader = new FileReader();

        reader.onload = function (e) {
           $('#img').attr('src', e.target.result);
        }
       reader.readAsDataURL(input.files[0]);
    }
    else
    {
      $('#img').attr('src', '/assets/no_preview.png');
    }
  });

});

Simple Solution. No Jquery

<img id="output" src="" width="100" height="100">_x000D_
_x000D_
<input name="photo" type="file" accept="image/*" onchange="document.getElementById('output').src = window.URL.createObjectURL(this.files[0])">
_x000D_
