Default Filter File Types in ASP.NET File Upload

Hi,

Anyone have idea about how to filter file types in asp.net file upload control. So that we ask user to select those files from Dialog box instead of regular exp/java script msg box.

Thanks

The <input type="file"> HTML element is limited to what the browser supports. There is no way I know of to specify a file type filter. All you can do is check the value in the element after they make a selection and/or check the file that is actually uploaded.
