Hi, I am trying to figure out a way to limit the fileupload control to only accept certain types of files. These include jpg, gif, png, pdf, and dwg. Also To prevent ampersands in the filename.
I am having trouble getting the regular expression correct.
<asp:RegularExpressionValidator id="FileUpLoadValidator" runat="server" 
                ErrorMessage="Please Only Upload PDF, Image, or DWG files."
