<title>:file Selector</title>
<desc>Selects all elements of type file.</desc>
<p><code>:file</code> is equivalent to <code>[type="file"]</code>. As with other pseudo-class selectors (those that begin with a ":") it is recommended to precede it with a tag name or some other selector; otherwise, the universal selector ("*") is implied. In other words, the bare <code>$(':file')</code> is equivalent to <code>$('*:file')</code>, so <code>$('input:file')</code> should be used instead. </p>
