Preview Image before Upload

In this blog, i will be showing how to display selected images to upload before upload in your browser.

First of all, we should have input fields of type file to select images from our drives.

<label>Single File:</label>
<input type="file" id="fileSingle" name="fileSingle" />
<label>Multiple Files:</label>
<input type="file" id="fileMultiple" name="fileMultiple[]" multiple />

<span id="outputSingle"></span> // span to display single selected image
<span id="outputMultiple"></span> // span to display multiple selected images.

Now we should add two event listener to get event 'change' for these two fields.

    $(document).ready(function() {
        var multifilediv = document.getElementById('fileMultiple');
        if (multifilediv) {
            multifilediv.addEventListener('change', MultipleFilehandler, false);
        var filediv = document.getElementById('fileSingle');
        if (filediv) {
            filediv.addEventListener('change', SingleFileHandler, false);

Now we should write two functions SingleFileHandler and MultipleFileHandler to display selected image.

    function SingleFileHandler(evt) {
        var file =;
        var f = file[0];
        if (!f.type.match('image.*')) {
            alert("Please Select Image.");
        var file_reader = new FileReader();
        file_reader.onload = (function(theFile) {
            return function(e) {
                var span = document.createElement('span');
                span.innerHTML = ['<img class="img-thumbnail" src="',, '" title="', escape(, '"/>'].join('');
                document.getElementById('outputSingle').innerHTML = "";
                document.getElementById('outputSingle').insertBefore(span, null);


    function MultipleFilehandler(evt) {
        var files =; // FileList object
        document.getElementById('outputMultiple').innerHTML = "";
        for (var i = 0, f; f = files[i]; i++) {

            if (!f.type.match('image.*')) {
                alert("Please select Images only.");
            var file_reader = new FileReader();
            file_reader.onload = (function(theFile) {
                return function(e) {
                    var span = document.createElement('span');
                    span.innerHTML = ['<img class="img-thumbnail" src="',, '" title="', escape(, '"/>'].join('');
                    document.getElementById('outputMultiple').insertBefore(span, null);

By now selected images will be displayed in your browser. You can download complete code from

Implementing Client Side WebRTC using Sipml5 javascript

Step 1:

Download and require Sipml5 library function.

Step 2:

Initialize sipml5 Engine in your web page :

var readyCallback = function(e) {
// function called when sipml is successfully initialised.
createSipStack(); // calling this function to create sip stack(see below)

var errorCallback = function(e) {
// function called when error occured during sipml initialisation.

SIPml.init(readyCallback, errorCallback);

Step 3:

Create Sip Stack :-
Sip Stack is an object that must be created before making/receiving call and sms. Creating Sip stack is an asynchronous process, so you need to create an event listener function to get state change notification.

var sipStack;

function EventListener(e) {

* e.type ;type of event listener
* e.session ; current event session
* e.getSipResponseCode() ; event response code
* e.description ; event description

if(e.type == 'started'){
// successfully started the stack.
} else if(e.type == 'i_new_call'){
// when new incoming call comes.
