File Browser (without uploading)

Hi,

I need to implement a Browse button, that will allow the user to choose a file from his local computer.

I know that there is a UI Element called FileUpload that enable choosing a file and uploading it from the client to the server, but I don't need the upload operation.

all I need is the user to choose a file and I want to know the name of the file that he chose.

thanks in advance, Adi

    u can use the Upload UIE for this. onAction event in the implementation u dont create the file ( i mean dont write the upload file code) instead u just take the file name and print it. u wont get the whole path of the file, jsut the name with extention. i hope u know how to use Upload UIE.

    regards,

    Piyush.
