How to do an AJAX file upload in ASP?

Hi Experts,
I've always coded file uploads using FreeAspUpload in a separate popup window, but would like to explore using Ajax instead.

Is this even possible? I've seen ajax upload tools but they're all ASP.NET and I'm looking for just pure ASP.

I've versed in Ajax and JQuery.

OK, your answers are here, click on the examples and on the File uploads tab : http://jquery.malsup.com/form/#file-upload

so basically to post a form using the plugin, here a basic page  :
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.form.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
         $('#uploadForm').ajaxForm({ "success": function() { alert("file successfully uploaded !"); } });
    });
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form id="uploadForm" action="files.php" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="file">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
</body>
</html>

Thanks, but your solution is PHP based (see the action=files.php in your example) which our web server doesn't support. We need a completely 100% ASP solution.

You said you've the server side code. Don't be afraid by an extension (file.php)
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.form.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
         $('#uploadForm').ajaxForm({ "success": function() { alert("file successfully uploaded !"); } });
    });
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form id="uploadForm" action="files.asp" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="file">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
</body>
</html>
