IE directory picker

P: n/a
Is there any way that I can use an input with type file as a directory
picker? The input starts a file picker but I want to be able to select a
folder rather than a file.

Thanks IA, Simon

No, because you can't upload a directory.

<input type="file"> is there to give the user agent the ability to POST
a form of enctype "multipart/form-data" and send the contents of the
specified file with the other POSTed data.
