how to get path from FileUpload web control

On my webform I would like to use the FileUpload control to select the file to upload. The selection works fine, and the full path and filename shows in the textbox. BUT when I want to get the full name (path & filename) I can't find any variable that actually gives me this.

I would expect to find something like FileUpload1.Path when there is a FileUpload1.Filename.

Any good ideas?
