I think that is the default behaviour.

May be you should use AJAX to fetch data for another field when u do a refresh.

Else pass those Upload control values to a cookie and store it. Once refreshed, you can fetch them.

I am not familiar with AJAX , please can you explain to me how that works.

I have not worked with cookies either... can a user disable the use of cookies on their machine ?

You can also do the samething..

When the file is selected using FileUpload control, you can get handle to the upload control by providing id to that.

Just get that path of the file and store it in a text field.


Let us see if someone has other ideas.

I think you got it wrong. Just u need to pass the path of the attchment to the Upload control. While saving it takes care of attaching file(s).

Hi....

I have tried doing that but have had no success. I have been told that you cannot populate the file upload control with a value & this is due to security reasons.

I can get the attachment paths into a text field as done in the mail template , but I have no clue how to save those attachments to the document.

if I try to do it on save , it will probably search the server itself for the files .

Please help me... this is really urgent.

Thanks guys for all your comments & help thus far.
