ASP.NET Folder Picker

Hello Experts,

I'm in the process of converting a winforms app to webforms, and one of the features they had implemented was the ability to pick a local/network folder from a directory picker, and I'm struggling with a way to do this in asp.net. I've found several ways to browse through directories and upload a file, but all I'm really needing is the path.

Any thoughts on how to accomplish this?

Thanks!
Brad

Only (older versions of) IE ever had the ability to pass a path during upload. The passing of a user's path to a particular file has been deemed a security concern, and as such no modern browsers offer this ability. I'm afraid you're out of luck short of asking the user to type it in manually (or copy/paste).
