I'm using the jQuery file upload plugin which has an API to programmatically upload files. The documentation writes:

$('#fileupload').fileupload('add', {files: filesList});

The problem is that I don't know what filesList should be. I have tried the following unsuccessfully:

$('#fileupload').fileupload('add', {files: ['/Users/bob/Desktop/test.png']});

What should filesList be exactly?

To quote the documentation:

The second argument must be an object with an array (or array-like list) of File or Blob objects as files property.

You can get file objects using the files property of a file type input or the HTML5 File API.

For more detail regarding working with the FileAPI and file inputs see:
