INPUT TYPE=FILE Alternative

P: n/a
I am aware of the security issues with the INPUT TYPE=FILE HTML form
element and not being able to set a default value for the control.

I dont want to be able to upload files , i just want to get their unc
paths and write them to a database , and then poulate the control with
the value when the page posts back.

Can i do this with a TEXT input element and some java script to
display the file/opnen dialog box and return the file name selected to
the text control?
