Hi,

I need users to be able to 'browse to' and select a folder (not a file!) from a web page.
As this is an intranet application and all clients are IE6, an embedded control should be ok.
Ideally the folder path returned should be a UNC path.
How do I do this?

Thanks

Isn't there an existing control I can use? That is what I was expecting.

Also, what is the HTML syntax for embedding the control? (Once I have one)

HTML has no such capbility, and even with scripting is prevent from doing it by build in security.  Basically you have to bypass client security to do what you want to do.  I am not aware of a pre-built embed to do it, but in the progamming topics they may have a class or package that does it.

The question is not going to get much response in HTML.

As for hoe it get embedded, that depends on the control. Most often an object tag will beused, though it could also be an applet tag, or be instaniated as an activex object in scripting.

Where do you want me to move it?
