Multiple file uploads like Sharepoint in ASP.NET C#
Posted on 2008-06-12
I'm trying to figure out how to upload files like sharepoint does for our website. I've looked at several posts regarding uploading multiple files in EE, but haven't found a satisfactory solution.
I understand that multiple files cannot be selected from the open dialog window, unless a custom activex control is written. My company doesn't like that solution.
The other alternative would be to use a file upload feature like google and hotmail does. But those solutions are also not sufficient. This would be our last resort solution.
A more ideal solution would be like that of Sharepoint. Sharepoint lets you choose multiple files to upload by showing you a window similar to that of the Explorer folder. Each file shown in the right pane has a checkbox next to it. The user can check the boxes to select the files he wants to upload.
Does anybody have any examples of this in code?
