A lightweight and cross-browser jQuery custom file input plugin which replaces the default file input field with custom styles and file select button.

How to use it:

1. Add jQuery JavaScript library and the jQuery customFileInput.js to the web page.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-nvAa0+6Qg9clwYCGGPpDQLVpLNn0fRaROjHqs13t4Ggj3Ez50XnGQqc/r8MhnRDZ" 
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>
<script src="js/customfileinput.js"></script>

2. Call the function customFileinput on your HTML form which has file input field(s) as follows:

<form class="customfileinput">
  <dl class="qiocform">
    <dd> <span>Name</span>
      <label class="textfield">
        <input type="text" name="name">
      </label>
    </dd>
    <dd> <span>Email Address:</span>
      <label class="textfield">
        <input type="text" name="email">
      </label>
    </dd>
    <dd> <span>Phone Number :</span>
      <label class="textfield">
        <input type="text" name="phone">
      </label>
    </dd>
    <dd> <span>Upload Your Document :</span>
      <label>
        <input type="file" />
      </label>
    </dd>
    <dd> <span>Upload Your Another Document:</span>
      <label>
        <input type="file" />
      </label>
    </dd>
    <dd class="invisible"> <span>Invisible Object:</span>
      <label>
        <input type="file" />
      </label>
    </dd>
    <dd> <span>Comment :</span>
      <label class="textfield">
        <textarea name="massage" cols="5" rows="5"></textarea>
      </label>
    </dd>
    <dd class="submit clearfix">
      <input type="submit" value="Submit" name="submit">
    </dd>
  </dl>
</form>
$('.customfileinput').customFileinput();

3. Apply you own CSS styles to the file input.

.customfile {
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
  width: 230px;
  height: 26px;
  border: solid 0px red;
  background: #fff;
  -moz-border-radius: 5px;
  -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
  border-radius: 5px;
  border: solid 1px #c2c2c2;
  padding: 2px;
  -webkit-box-shadow: inset 1px 1px 2px #e4e4e4;
  box-shadow: inset 1px 1px 2px #e4e4e4;
}

.customfile span {
  display: block;
  float: left;
}

.customfile span.cust-field {
  line-height: 20px;
  padding: 3px 4px;
  width: 151px;
  height: 20px;
  cursor: pointer;
  color: #212121;
  display: block;
  font-weight: normal;
  color: #333;
}

.customfile span.cust-btn {
  float: right;
  line-height: 20px;
  padding: 1px 10px;
  height: 22px;
  text-align: center;
  font-weight: bold;
  cursor: pointer;
  color: #333;
  background: #e1e1e1;
  -moz-border-radius: 3px;
  -webkit-border-radius: 3px;
  border-radius: 3px;
  text-transform: uppercase;
  margin-top: 1px;
}

.customfile .fileinput {
  position: absolute;
  left: 0px;
  top: 0px;
  cursor: pointer;
  z-index: 99;
}
