Multiple file uploads like Sharepoint in ASP.NET C#

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?

Thank you!

Sharepoint uses an activeX control that is called "idUploadCtl"  so you would have to use ActiveX to get that look/feel.

You could also "hide" multiple FileUpload controls and use a listbox and button (controled by jscript) to get a MultiUpload feel.

sm394, Thanks for your input, but that video is describing the same solution I mentioned in my question.  Basically, it's the same implementation of uploading files as hotmail and gmail.

I guess there's no other way of doing it?  If not, all the points will be allocated to ShazbotOK.
