I'm creating a web page using VS Web Express and I'm wanting to use the FileUpload to browse to a file and have the path to the file copied over to a text box. This should be pretty easy, I'm just not familiar with the FileUpload. Any help would be appreciated. I can use a button to do the copy or it can happen on change, it doesn't matter.

You can use the HttpPostedFile.FileName value and assign it to your textbox.text.

The file has to be uploaded to the server first. You can not access it on the client directly.
