Default <input type="File"> - Specify File Type and Path

I am programming with ASP.NET, and need to be able to upload a file. Does anyone know if it is possible to specify i) The file type, ii) The path, when using the HTML input control (type="file")

Many Thanks

When uploading files use a component of some sort. This will give you full control of what file type, and where you place it on the host.

Eg a good component i use is aspSmartUpload its free and easy to use.

Download from http://www.aspsmart.com/ comes with heaps of examples

Good luck
