I have a lightning-input with type file so I can upload files. I don't want the little box that says "Or drop files" that shows up beside the upload button to show. Is there a way to hide it? upload screenshot

I've already seen the solution at Lightning:input type="file" change the "Upload Files" text, but it isn't working for me in LWC.




.THIS .slds-file-selector__dropzone .slds-file-selector__text{
    display: none !important;

.THIS .slds-file-selector__text .slds-medium-show {
    display: none !important;

rendered .html

<span lightning-input_input="" class="slds-file-selector__text slds-medium-show">Or drop files</span>

I don't think you can access this because of the shadow dom limiting your access to it. may have to build one from scratch : /

  • I would recommend using one of the workarounds from that thread, such as loadStyle or <style>. They're kind of hacky but you're going to have a really hard time recreating the standard upload component – Benjamin Vogler Sep 30 '20 at 0:52
