|In Joomla! 1.5, form fields were parameters. For that version, you may want to use the corresponding Text parameter type.|
Note: You should always add the attribute enctype="multipart/form-data" to your form tag when using the file input type. Otherwise, the uploaded files will not be attached correctly.
Note 2: You can put a soft limit file size by adding a hidden field with name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" and value the maximum allowed bytes which is handled by php, but you must also handle it in your code with or without it. Example XML field definition:
<field name="myfilevalue" type="file" label="Enter some text" description="Choose an image from your computer with maximum 100KB" size="10" accept="image/*" />
