it should be as:
<m:slides IPAddress  = "172.20.106.85" port = "3336" type = "mixed" locator='<%="file:///C:/" + filename%>'/>

or this version is more easier to read:

<% String fullPath = "file:///C:/" + filename"; %>
<m:slides IPAddress  = "172.20.106.85" port = "3336" type = "mixed" locator= "<%=fullPath%>"/>

thanks kennethxu,

i managed to think of the solution along that line too....what i have was

<% String fullPath = "file:///C:/" + filename; %>
<m:slides IPAddress  = "172.20.106.85" port = "3336" type = "mixed" locator= "<%=fullPath%>"/>

but they works the same!!!! thanks again
