Default How to add more file uploads?

Hi all, it's abit difficult to explain but i really urgently would like to ask if anyone knows how to:

when user would like to add more file upload browsers, then when the user click for button, more upload browsers can automatically show on the screen? or maybe, to put it simply, how to automatically show more textboxes when user click on a button that is requesting for more textboxes to be shown?

Must i do it using java script or can i do it with C#? btw, i'm using microsoft visual studio 2005 program to do my website.

Thank you very much!

Hard question :)
Every textBox have an feature called: visible = true/false

I think, maby you can create a bunch of invisible Textboxes, and by Clicking the button, you will open them. it's very simple like on/off switch.

Protected void Button_Click(object sender,System.EventArgs e)
     TextBox1.Visible = true;
     TextBox2.Visible = true;
     TextBox10.visible = true;

I really don't know how to open a new browser window automatically in c#,
but i do know that JavaScript allows you to do this kind of stuff
Check msdn.com There's a lot of useful information there.

Send a message via Yahoo to vikingsunil

Doing it with C# on the server side will be time consuming. If I understand your question correctly, I would advise you to go for Javascript.

Hi Asp.Net and vikingsunil,

I've actually managed to make textboxes to be invisible first then i have a 'add more' button to allow user to click and more textboxes. however, the webpage i need to display again with the same number of textboxes the user initiate before he click on my 'submit' button to process the stuffs in that page, i'm unable to capture the number of textboxes he had added. Thus, when the page refresh, it didnt show the additional textboxes the user had requested and filled up but if click on the 'add more' button again, it'll show the textboxes which were filled up previously.

Actually, i'm using the html textboxes. i've tried to use the 'hidden value' but it doesn't seems to be passing any values. so, wonder if any of you know how to deal with the hidden value?

thank you very much
