Multiple File Upload html element ?

Hello,


Does anyone have a solution to select multiple files in a "file"-type html element.
With a normal <input type ='text' the user can only select one file.

- I don't want to include multiple <input type = 'text' elements
- I've tried it with jupload.biz applet but it doesn't completele work because my 'postprocessor'-file does some javascripts/iframes etc and this doesn't work in the swing-frame jupload uses.

Does anyone know of an applet/activex that lets you select multiple files and then 'posts' them to a 'postpreocessor'-page in a browser ?


Tnx anyway

Tnx for the comment but this is not what i'm looking for.

I'm using jspSmartUpload to save the file in the 'postprocessor' file and it works fine if i for instance use multiple <input type = "file" - elements.

I want something that lets a user select multiple files and then posts them all to another file.

What you can probably do is ... upload one file at a time, clearing the file input field every time you upload and all the uploaded filenames in a list below. Keep a track of all the files uploaded in a list and on submit use that list.

that way the user still has to select one file at the time.

If you want to e.g. 150 (little) files it's not user-friendly

Okay ...what you can probably do is to implement a checkbox treeview of the file system and let the user select whatever files he want to in the treeview which on submit button click goes to the server.

Else instead of a tree view you can have a listbox and enable multiple select feature.

that way i'll only have the filename he can select, i got to have the file itself.
With only the filename i won't be able to get the file from the user's file system. If this would be possible, it would be a big security risk.
