ASP.NET file dialog box

I have a ASP.NET web page I'm working on.  I need the user to be able to pick a file from a directory that will be available on the users local PC.  When the user clicks the 'browse' button, I would like to be able to programmatically set a default directory that will automatically come up.  Presently, the FileUpload1 widget brings up the 'my documents' folder and the user would have to perform several clicks to get to the desired directory.

Thanks.

It is not possible. Only browser decides which folder will be initial for file uploading dialog. Different browsers can use different initial folders. Even not all (if any) browsers support browsing for a certain type of file (e.g. *.jpg).

I have not used/tried any but you may try to see what features have file upload controls implemented in flash and used by ASP.NET. Maybe they are more flexible. They can show file upload progress, they can upload two or more files at a time. Maybe they can help you with initial folder.
