Is anyone know how to filtering the file type in web using C#? Let say if user select microsoft excel in a dropdownlist, when he clicked on the browse button, the files of type will automatically filter to files in *.xls. As I know the OpenFileDialog can use filter method, but this is only limited to window form. Pls advise on the filtering issue. TQ.

although it's the html standard, no one implements it yet.

dear testn

The article you suggested is going to check the file type when send/submit button was clicked but the Files of Type in the dialog box is still showing *.*/All Files. My requirement is how to make the Files of Type in the dialog box to be filtered as *.xls   or *.doc or... instead of showing *.*. Would it possible to make it in the web using C#?? TQ.
