Iam using VS2015. Now Iam preparing a small project in ASP.Net. Iam using a control FileUpload.
ASPX - Page
<asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" runat="server" ClientIDMode="Static" onchange="this.form.submit()" BackColor="Purple" style="font:20px calibri; border:5px solid blue; Width:100%; Height:100%;"/>

String MyExcelFile = FileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName;

The problem is after executing this above statement, the FileUpload1 clearing the Text value. So is it possible to display the readed file in FileUpload1.

Thanks Regarads

What I have tried:

I try to avoid FileUpload Text clearing

It's not possible due to security reasons. If you explain your overall aims someone may be able to help you come up with a solution.

When I use it, the value stays. Do you have ViewState off perhaps?

Thanks, I don't know what is with security, but I know windows forms OpenFileDialog() to read a file. Now preparing a interview project in WebForms. I need to read a file & it should not get clear the text, after to read. Thanks!

Take a look at this example - I think your question is not clear, are you just having problems getting the contents of the uploaded file?

Thanks. No Iam looking for FileUpload only. It's not required to have Upload button & Label. I need to use FileUpload only but the content of browse textbox should not clear. Thanks again
