I think it's a limitation of the browsers capabilities.
Keep in mind that HTML elements are an agreed upon standard in which the browser will interpret the element and attempt to render it in the browsers window to the best of it's ability.
I did some reading, and Google's Chrome, the latest version supports selecting the whole folder.
Keep in mind that you can program the window that opens to select a file to or for,
File Extension Types as a filter
Single or Multiple Selection
so if the browser has the capability, you should be able to toggle that feature.
I am very new in ASP.NET. Actually I code in vb.net and trying to make a database driven dynamic website.
I use to connect database through an XML file where I put the server, database name, user id and password. Then from a class I call these to connect the database. In this class I put the connectionstring which always read the data from the XML file like...
If (IO.File.Exists("db.xml")) ThenDim DbXmlReader As XmlReader = New XmlTextReader("db.xml")
Dim DbNodeType = DbXmlReader.NodeType
If (DbNodeType = XmlNodeType.Element) ThenIf (DbXmlReader.Name = "server") Then
srv = DbXmlReader.ReadInnerXml.ToString
the above code is just a snippet.
Now my questions are...
1. Is the above method possible in ASP.NET to connect with a database ?
2. If not, then how should I connect with the database ?
3. Lastly, is there any good tutorial for beginners that how to create a database driven dynamic website from scratch in ASP.NET?
The tutorial should have all like add a template, adding css, database connection etc.
For more examples of connection strings, see:
Dim connectionStringSettings As ConnectionStringSettings = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("MyConnectionString")
Using connection AsNew SqlConnection(connectionStringSettings.ConnectionString)
