I am running the local version of galaxy. My question regards the tool 'Upload File' within 'Get Data'. The associated upload.xml file contains the parameter <param name="file_data type="file" size="30" label="File" ajax-upload="true" help="TIP: ....">. Using the type="file" allows the user to browse the hard drive for a specific file.
I want to implement a tool into my local galaxy using the param type="file" that allows the user to browse and choose a specific file. After choosing the file, the file pathway will be treated as an input variable and transferred into python code where I will be able to alter the path.
Is this possible? Any help would be much appreciated.
