Upload file using custom button

Is there a way to use a custom button with the:

<Input ID="MyFile" Type="File" RunAt="Server"> ?

This gives you a generic button, but I would like to use my own button that
has the same style as the other buttons I've created.

Is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks,

Tom

Hi,

The textbox and button control will come as a single component and you
cannot change that. Even you cannot change the button's caption property from
"Browse" to any other string. Because that is the standard File control.
However you can apply styles to it and change the color, look, etc., In my
opinion, if you really want to change, I suggest positioning a div element
over the browse button by calculating the positions and hiding the browse
button, and then you have to figure out, how to raise the click event for the
browse button!

Good article.

I think I will just use the button as done by the Browser and use a custom
button to actually download the file.

Thanks,

I am uploading a file from the file input box (textbox with a browse button) but when you tell the file to upload the client doesn't see anything happen until its done uploading... I'd love to provide some kind of visual feedback (an animated image or something while it happens to show its going, and at best a progress of the upload) is there anyway to do this in asp.net? thanks

Heya all, I'm working on a web-based application (using ASP.NET and C# on .NET 1.1.4322, supporting only IE6 for Windows) that allows for file uploads.
