Default file opening

Hi Folks,

From a LINK or BUTTON on a webpage can we invoke the usual OPEN FILE dialog box that come with all the windows application .

In my Application I want to ASK the user the Name of a FILE on the disk ... currently i am asking the user to input the COMPLETE PATH in a TEXTBOX ....

Anyother Methods ... ????

Sudhan.

Use a standard text box and change the type to file

TYPE="FILE"

It would usually be TEXT or HIDDEN

Hi Sudhan,

You can use this, within your form.

Code:
<INPUT type="File" name="File1">
Cheers!
