    I use XForms to obtain a file path from the user and to write it on a local file:

    HTML:
    ...
    <xf:model  id="model1">
         <xf:instance>
               <input>./data/default.txt</input>
         </xf:instance>
         <xf:submission  id="s01" method="put" action="file:output.xml" />
    </xf:model>
    ...
    <xf:input  model="model1" ref="input">
         <xf:label>File path:</xf:label>
    </xf:input>
    ...
    <xf:submit  submission="s01">
         <xf:label>Save</xf:label>
    </xf:submit>
    
    Here everything works correctly, but the path has to be written "by hand" inside the form.
    What I need is the possibility to choose the file in the usual way, with a point and click.
    I can do it with an usual form:

    HTML:
    <input  model="model1" ref="input" type="file" name="datafile" size="40 />
    
    but in this way I cannot save the path on a local file...

    Is it possible to get both things at the same time?
    I.e. choose a local file from the GUI and save its path on a local text or XML file?
    Either with XForms, classic forms or whatever...
