I want to be able to display the browse folder dialog box when a user clicks on a button.  I can do the file dialog box but I need to show the browse folder dialog box instead.

How can I do this?

Any/all help is appreciated.

Thanks.

To see folders on the client, try:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE> New Document </TITLE>
</HEAD>

<BODY>
<FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="">
Choose:<input type="file">
</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>

That gives me the normal file browse dialog box which does give the folders but makes the user have to select a file.  I want the user to select only a folder location.

And you want the folder location from the client or the server?

Client.  The purpose of this is to allow the user to copy a file from one location (which is already been given) to another location that the user will select based on the folder.

Thanks.

I don't think that you can do that with standard html or asp. There may be some sort of ActiveX component to allow that, but then you will run into security issues.
