asp upload component - multiple files

P: n/a
Hi there,

I am looking for a component allowing me uploading multiple files by my
asp page. I have found several components achieving this by require a
<input type="file" name="FileX"> field for each file to upload. I want
to allow my visitor to select the files to upload in the "Open" window.
In the "Open" window it should be possible to select multiple files.

Does such an asp component exist?

I have tested some like SAFileUp or Pure VB, but all seems to require
an <input> field for each file to upload.

Thanks for any suggestion.

Hello,

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately this does not help. I have already
done some research on this topic. As I am wrote, uploading multiple
files is not the issue. The issue is to select these multiple files
without having a <input> field for each file to upload.

I want to click on an button that opens a "Open window". In this window
it should be possible to select multiple files which should be
uploaded. Does anyone know a component which can achieve this goal?

ASP has nothing to do with it. you're asking about allowing the client
to select multiple files at once. ASP runs on the server, not the
client.

There's no way to do this in HTML. The <input type="file"..." > HTML
element allows a user to select ONE file. You can have as many of
those elements on the page as you want, but each one will result in
one file being uploaded.

If you write an ActiveX control, of course, you can do anything you
want.

Even Microsoft's OWA with Exchange (which is just an ASP Site) only lets you
select one file at a time.

You can't without having something client side (java applet, activex control
or dotnet control) that the users will have to allow (for safety reasons).

Basically, because of poor browser support, you can't. It's a client
side issue.

Thanks all for your help.

Is there any ActiveX control out to buy which will achieve this? Any
recommendations?
