    We're using Selenium to do automated testing. We've been seeing flaky behavior around performing a click on the input field - could potentially be timing-related.

    I was wondering if you guys have any suggestions / gotchas of performing automated testing of the upload control.

    Hello,

    The upload control does not do anything fancy (like flash or other ActiveX). It is just an invisible absolutely positioned HTML input type="file". Can you please try to turn the widget off, and see if the problem persists?

    It was a timing-related issue. The animation on the display fadeIn via the window control was what was causing the issue. Thanks for your quick response, nonetheless.
