Hi,

I want to enable multiple file upload to a folder on my website. I have an ASP.Net visual basic web site, I developed it with Visual Studio 2008 and it also uses some Ajax. The user needs to be able to select multiple files on his computer and then hit upload and it will upload to my folder on the website.

Is this possible? If so are there any samples?

Thanks

Actually, a webbrowser supports only the upload for only one file at the time. You can get this via the <input type="file" /> tag.
Maybe this codeproject article can help you out:

If you have money to spend, Telerik, Inc. makes a very good tool called RadUpload: http://www.telerik.com/products/aspnet-ajax/controls/upload/overview.aspx

It includes a nice progress indicator. If you use this be sure to make the appropriate registrations in web.config.
