InputFile.Poste dFile.FileName not giving full file path

Hi,

I have a web form where it has a <input type=file id=file1> control. I
have an Upload button to upload the file. WHen I click on browse and select
one file, it is showing the full file path in the text box of File control.
But in the code behind when I try to get the FullFile path using
file1.PostedFil e.FilePath it is not giving the full path (c:\test\test.p df).
Instead it is giving only file name (test.pdf). If i try to do this on other
computer, it is giving the full path. I am not sure why it is not giving the
full path on my computer. Please let me know if you have any idea.

Thanks,

The full path of the file is really superflous information that the
browser sends along, probably mostly for historical reasons. It's only
the file name that is interresting anyway.

Are you using the same browser and same version of the browser when you
are testing on the different computers?

Is there any antivirus/firewall/protection software installed on your
computer that might remove the path information from the form data?

Hi,

I think it is due to IE 7 Beta 2. I am running IE 7 Beta 2 and the other
one has IE6. Other than that, Everything is same.

Thanks,
Sridhar.

Hello everybody Do you know of a javascript routine that can warn if there are any pre-defined invalid chars in the filename of an INPUT file box before it is submitted with the submit button. The process would be: a) User clicks the INPUT File's Browse button to select the file from their computer.

Hi, I'm trying to upload files and to use the revision number field of the file. By using PostedFile.SaveAs the files are uploaded. The problem is that the summary tab and the revision number are deleted. Is this behavior is "by design" or it is just a bug? Thanks, Hadar
