Why use a component?

You can do this in pure asp script.

Search google for 'pure asp upload'

sure.... if you really want to.

but as with ANY upload solution that does not rely on client side plug-ins,
you'll still need to select each file one by one.

Maybe ASPUpload will do this, or XUpload
(http://www.aspupload.com/xupload.html) -- IE only.

However, ASPUpload is not free (see if your server already supports it).

I'm not sure I understand this constant motivation to only use free
components. If it takes you even an hour to code up a solution yourself, is
your time not worth using elsewhere and just spend the $100?

Again, you will have to search around for components that will do this.

Or, ask your clients to not be so lazy and actually put the files in a zip
folder. There are free / cheap ZIP components that will allow you to
extract the contents of an archive once it is uploaded. You can also
schedule something within the OS to run in the background and extract any
new ZIP archives it finds in the upload folder.

I say again.... who needs an upload component when you can do this in
PURE ASP?

Just use script instead of components (and extra server overhead)

It's been well-established (just Google this newsgroup) that a non-component
(pure asp) upload is slow. If you're dealing with large uploads, it is best
to use a component.

Whilst I do agree bob, I imagine for the situation intended, a script
based solution will be more than adequate.

I envisage a site with hundreds of users all performing uploads
is not what is in discussion here.

Anyway, there is a very fast script based one out there that side-steps
the usual string-concat downfall of ASP.

"More than adequate" does not mean optimal.

In any case, you're still not solving the problem. How does using pure ASP,
as you keep pushing, help the OP upload an entire folder?

Haven't you ever worked for a company that doesn't allow you to spend
any money? Whether or not it's cost effective is another argument,
but sometimes you're just not allowed to spend a dime.

Or, ask your clients to not be so lazy and actually put the files in a zip

Are you kidding? Computer illiterate people don't know how to
zip/unzip anything.

How does ANY component solve that?
At the end of the day, a browser limits the input of type 'file' to a
single file.... there is no server side component that will deal with
this issue.

You will have to go for some browser based plug-in, or client side EXE to
get round this if you just want a single click on folder and away it
goes.

1) I never said they were "stupid", dont be so deffensive, geesh.
2) Just because it's posted in an ASP group doesn't guarantee the poster
realizes when something is server side vs client side, often they are simply
not certain.
3) actually file uploading, even with a component, involves BOTH the client
and the server, so in this case it very well could be ASP related.
4) Hey, I'm with you in preferring a pure asp upload, when it fits the
needs, and in fact have a nice one on my site. Just that in this case, or
any where you need to do multiple files, it's component time.

agreed....

I think entire folder uploads would be a good feature to build into
browsers.... i guess this will need to meet standards approval (thats if
said standard bodies are considering this)

It is I guess a flaw that has not yet been addressed, although one could
argue thats why FTP exists.

Good solution.... but however, as I originally pointed out, I was always
referring to server side components (as this was an ASP group), and I did
mention a client side solution would need to be implemented....

That xupload looks like a very cool solution to a growing problem.

Thanks for the link!

Hi.
How can you guys complete a project?
Go back and see the original post.
Then answer the question without a lot of detours, or other solutions.

The requirements are very plain and simple. The guy is not asking about
anything but what he said.

How did I contribute?
I posted reply #3.
I noticed that the first two replies did not satisfy the requirements of the
original post, and I gently pointed that out.

Since then we've had more irrellevant, off the mark, out of bounds idea that
did NOT meet the requirements, and again I have pointed that out.

Perhaps the notion that sticking to the requirements is a requirement will
last longer in the minds of these participants than any misguided,
wrong-headed asp upload ideas will.
Longer even, then the flames I will endure for being so helpful.

I pointed out XUpload twice, which DOES meet the requirements. You and Rob
both seemed to miss that, and I have now taken abuse from both of you for
your own inability to follow up.

And if you don't think discussions around the merits of component-based vs
component-less upload are valid, why don't you let the original poster
determine whether the dialog is helpful or not?
