I'm currently working on a file management tool for my content management system.
For this I'm using mainly PHP and javascript (ajax).

I'm looking for a solutions to have a button which opens a filesystem selector dialog (like the <input type="file" thingie), but in which I can directly select multiple files using the Ctrl or Shift key of my keyboard.

So I'm not looking for a system that let you select one item per time and adds them to a list, and enable you to upload the list at once. I want to select the files at once.

If a solutions is available with a file upload progress bar for the selected files, this would be great. But selecting multiple files at once is my main target.

In first instance I would like to see if this is possible through javascript, but it really isn't possible, what is the best way to go from here, without any java, flash or other skills?

Thanks!

You can do this in Flash.  You cannot do it in HTML.  Believe me, I have tried.

Have a look at this: http://www.element-it.com/MultiPowUpload.aspx

Looks like a cool solutions, specially because you can use a HTML interface with javascript.
Only drawback would be that I would find it cool to see the upload status per file, but you can't have it all I guess ;).

Thanks!
