I am Trying to Retrieve Full Path of File on Chrome Browser Using FileUpload?

I am using file upload:
' Retrieving the file name and path from the file dialogue selection
        Dim file As String = BulkDataFileUpload.PostedFile.FileName ' IE Browser Only

I am using the ASP.NET <asp:FileUpload ID="BulkDataFileUpload" CssClass="BulkDataFileUpload" runat="server" Width="250px" /> tag

I am getting back the filename only.  I need the full file path.

Thanks,

Dan

Passing the full path of a file is discouraged in web environments as a security precaution. Only non-standard browsers typically do this...generally only IE does this.
