htmlInputFile

Hi,

I have a page with a htmlInputFile that is working fine. However, if I go
to another page, and then go back to the page with the htmlInputFile, I get
the following error

Warning: Page has Expired The page you requested was created using
information you submitted in a form. This page is no longer available. As a
security precaution, Internet Explorer does not automatically resubmit your
information for you.

To resubmit your information and view this Web page, click the Refresh
button.
Even if I do not use the htmlInputFile, this error is still generated (there
is not submitted information). If I disable the control, then the error
does not occur.

Please let me know how I can stop this behavior. I would like the user to
be able to move back and forth between two pages without having to refresh
each time.

Thanks for any help,

Stephen

This behavior is from the browser. It is caused by the fact that an ASP.Net
WebForm posts back to itself. A web page that exists as the result of a form
post has been dynamically-created by some server-side technology, and the
browser knows this. Therefore, if the last page in history was the result of
a form post operation, the browser will prompt you to re-post the form in
order to refresh the page.

Thanks Kevin,

I do have a number of controls on this page (datagrid, dundas chart, etc.),
and the htmlInputFile is the only control that causes this behavior. If I
understand correctly, since the htmlInputFile is some server-side
technology, whenever I return to a page with a htmlInputFile on it, I will
be required to refresh and there is no way around this? If so, are there
other ways to move a file from client to server that will not cause this
behavior?

Can I use HtmlInputFile to only get the selected file name but not actually upload the file? Clicking the control's Browse button let's the user select a file. All I need is the HtmlInputFile Value property. However, any button clicked on the Html page results in uploading the selected file. Is there a way to avoid the actual uploading? Alternatively, is there any other way to let a user select a file name from his local disk?

I have an application that uses FreeTextBox 2.0 (http://www.freetextbox.com). FreeTextBox is a rich text editor that behaves similarly to MS Word.

The problem is that when you include an image with the rich text editor, the image path is the local path on the client. I have written a method that examines the text for <img> tags,...
