in order to create the temp file.

How do I get the parameter and value of clients web browser temporary
system path?

You don't have access to the client filesystem for obvious security reasons.
Therefore you can't.

"you" is the clientside code you put in your page, that has no access to
the client's hard disk under normal internet security settings of the
browser.

"The browser" itself has access to do it's job, but "you" don't.

The browser is a trusted executable that is running on the client's machine.
ASP / JavaScript code is missing at least one of those requirements.

Hi Aaron,

the file that i want to create is an image file type - bmp jpg gif...-
it is not a trusted exe.

i don't want to create the file on the server, because each user opens
a session,
and if i have several users on parallell time, the web server will be
very busy processing the users requests.

Yes, I am well aware of that. I was trying to explain why Internet Explorer
can create files on the user's hard drive, but you can't.
