Hi EE,

I have a web application where users can have their own portfolio.  The users will be taking before/after pictures of their clients and I would like the users to be able to click a button on a web page, once the picture is taken I would like to automatically upload the picture to the server folder and then display.  
Has anyone seen a component or anything that will do this?

Thanks

Using regular HTML File Upload fields, it's not possible to automate the selection of a file to upload - this would make your PC far to open to abuse.

There are a couple of other options though to simplify the selection of a file though.

First is a Java solution - http://www.javapowupload.com/.  This costs $79.99 for one server
This allows multiple files to be uploaded from a far more friendly interface than a regular HTML file upload box.
Don't worry that this is Java, not .Net - it runs in the client, and uploads files to the server in just the same way that an HTML file upload would.

Another option is to use CSS and JavaScript. I don't know if you use Gmail, but when you want to add an attachment to an email, you can just drag and drop it onto a large panel that appears whenever you drag a file from Windows over the top of the email.
When you release the file, it's automatically uploaded.

This is not as widely supported (in different browsers) as the Java solution is, but it is free.
There's an explanation on how to do it here: http://www.thecssninja.com/javascript/gmail-upload
