open dialogbox in ASP.NET

I am using this code below so that i can open a dialog box and select a folder from a drive, and make the folder name and path show up on the text box in the web form, but it doesn't open the dialog box.

Any idea?

Private Sub Button6_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Me.Button6.Attributes.Add("OnClick", "ShowDialog();")
    End Sub

thanks

can you post the  ShowDialog() client code?
If I were to add this code in the page_load event of the webform Me.Button6.Attributes.Add("OnClick", "ShowDialog();")  and ShowDialog is a valid function, whatever script in the function will be executed

example

<script type="text/javascript">
function ShowAlert()
{
alert('Hello');
}
</script>

and in the page_load you add Me.Button6.Attributes.Add("OnClick", "ShowAlert();") the script will run fine.

one more thing you said >>i can open a dialog box and select a folder from a drive, and make the folder name and path show up on the text box in the web form
are you trying to upload a file to the server? If yes then you can use <input id="uplTheFile" type=file runat="server"> in asp.net 1.1 or <asp:FileUpload ID="browse" runat="server" /> in asp.net 2.0

Hi jskfan,

add also on page_load function

        Dim scriptString as String = "<script language=JavaScript> function ShowDialog() {"
        scriptString += "alert('Hi there'); }<"
        scriptString += "/"
        scriptString += "script>"
     
            If(Not IsClientScriptBlockRegistered("clientScript"))
        RegisterClientScriptBlock("dlg", scriptString)
        End If

Hi jskfan,

you cannot open a network drive with a browser unless it is mapped. This is a security issue.

Hi jskfan,

Here is a sample of open folder dialog but you have to set permissions accordingly.

Hi jskfan,

sorry for the delay but i was out for a wahile...

1. Add script as a standard script block into the header
2. attach finction to desired object, i.e.
Me.Button6.Attributes.Add("OnClick", "t();")

regards

Hi jskfan,
The code is indeed for asp.net

The button3_click subroutine executes and displays the cotents of open file dialog in a textbox .

I am using this code in an ecommerce ASP.NET web application. And it's working.

skvikram ,

that was excellent!!!

1-I didn't know that you can  put sub procedure in the HTML page, I did and it run just good.

2-Can the open dialog box pickup a folder instead of a file? if it is not incovenient for you can you show me how to do it?

Thanks a lot!!!!

skvikramCommented:
It is simple the button3_click subroutine takes the filename in infile variable and puts this in text box.

Dim inFile as string
infile=inpFileUp.PostedFile.FileName
Dim infolder as string
infolder=Path.GetDiretoryName(infile)
txtbox.Text = infolder
