Passing path to uploaded file from HTML5 drag & drop to input field

I'm working on an application (in Node.js, which is irrelevant for this case) which allows the user to upload an image. It works fine using a form with an input (type="file") field. However, what I want is to be able to upload an image using HTML5 drag and drop instead. As far as i've come it's possible to drag an image to the client, and the image thumbnail is displayed in a div. However I really need some help with getting the file upload working. The thing is that I want to use the form that i'm using right now, and (somehow) pass the file's path to the input field, i.e. the flow will work exactly as it do now, but instead of choosing a file by browsing it I want to attach it to the input field by drag and drop. In the js code below for drag and drop the file that was dragged to the client is stored in the variable "file", and i'm able to use "", "file.type" and "file.size" exactly the same way as it works since before with the form. However, I can't access the files "path" (file.path) which makes it impossible to access the file server side for uploading the same way as I do it since before. The question is, is it possible to pass the file object to the input field after the file has been dragged to the client, so that I can click on "submit" and upload the file? If so, how could this be done? Thanks in advance! the dropbox as well as the form i'm using for file uploads:

File API and FileReader API not supported

the code for drag and drop: uploadImage: function(){ var holder = document.getElementById('holder'), state = document.getElementById('status'); if (typeof window.FileReader === 'undefined') { state.className = 'fail'; } else { state.className = 'success'; state.innerHTML = 'File API & FileReader available'; } holder.ondragover = function () { this.className = 'hover'; return false; }; holder.ondragend = function () { this.className = ''; return false; }; holder.ondrop = function (e) { this.className = ''; e.preventDefault(); var file = e.dataTransfer.files[0], reader = new FileReader(); reader.onload = function (event) { = 'url(' + + ') no-repeat center'; }; reader.readAsDataURL(file); return false; }; },
