How to get type of a file in <apex:inputfile>

Hi All,

how to get "type" of a file in <apex:inputfile>.

type is nothing but Extension of file.

For Eg:1) Type=xls for excel
            2) Type=txt for text files.

Thanks,
 Vivek g.

I understand that you want to know the uploaded file type in <apex:inputfile>

Please let me know if the following script works for you

<input type="file" value="{!attachment.body}" name="{!attachment.name}" id="file" accept="image/jpeg, image/png"> </input>
