please Take a look at the attached screen shot.
I have two buttons. A browse button and submit button.
When I click on browse it picks the path to a file I want to process.

My target is to click the submit button to run the process but when I do this,  the page
re post again and the content of my path is lost.

I am new to mvc. How can i handle this so that on the click of submit button the path
to my file will not be lost and I can still execute a method in my controller.


[HttpPost]
        public ActionResult Index(HttpPostedFileBase file)
        {
            // do something
            return View();
        }

public void ProcessMyStuffHere()
        {
             //do something  
        }

Thanks.

Use ajax file uploader I don't think you need submit button. Google for "ajax file uploader"
