How to set the path value to <input type="file"> object

Hi All,

How to set the path value to file object using javascript. now i am trying to upload the file without using browse button, but i could not set the path value..

see my code:

<form name="thisForm" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<table align="center">
<td align="left"><b>Select a file to upload :</b></td>
<td align="left">
<input type="file" id="filename" name="uploadfile" size="50">
<td align="left">
<input type="button" name="button" value="Upload" onClick="fnupload()">

// not reflecting
document.thisForm.uploadfile.value="C:\Documents and Settings\test.txt";

This is not supported and a good job too otherwise it would be a security hole. Imagine if someone programs a website to upload any file from your local drive onto his server.
