I have some code which returns the file name which has been selected using the standard file uploader control. Here is the code;

Response.Write(FileUpload1.FileName + "<br>");

I need to be able to return the file location of the file which has been selected using the standard file uploader control. I am not sure how to do this.

Hi,

FileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName;

This would return a full path of the posted file. But for different browser the information send along will be different.

This should work perfectly for IE versions.

For firefox any another browser, the only way you can do it is using javascript to set the selected file location somewhere (in hiddenfield) and then refer to it when the server is posted back

<asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" runat="server" />

In Page_Load
FileUpload1.Attributes.Add("onchange", "SetFileLocation()");

SetFileLocation is the javascript file where you take the location and set it in the hidden field

Hope this give you some idea
