I use this lines in my `aspx` code
<input type="file"  name="file1" id="file1" />;
  <input type="button" value="SendFile" onclick="uploadFile()"/>;<br />
  <progress id="progressBar" value="0" max="100" style="width:300px;"> </progress>
  <h3 id="status"></h3>
  <p id="loaded_n_total"></p>

And I also use this `script` in order to manage the Up Loading proses.
<script type="text/javascript">
function _(el){
	return document.getElementById(el);
function uploadFile(){
	var file = _("file1").files[0];
	// alert(" | "+file.size+" | "+file.type);
	var formdata = new FormData();
	formdata.append("file1", file);
	var ajax = new XMLHttpRequest();
	ajax.upload.addEventListener("progress", progressHandler, false);
	ajax.addEventListener("load", completeHandler, false);
	ajax.addEventListener("error", errorHandler, false);
	ajax.addEventListener("abort", abortHandler, false);"POST","");
function progressHandler(event){
	_("loaded_n_total").innerHTML = "Uploaded "+event.loaded+" bytes of ";
	var percent = (event.loaded / * 100;
	_("progressBar").value = Math.round(percent);
	_("status").innerHTML = Math.round(percent)+"% uploaded... please wait";
function completeHandler(event){
	_("status").innerHTML =;
	_("progressBar").value = 0;
function errorHandler(event){
	_("status").innerHTML =  "Upload Failed  " ;
function abortHandler(event){
	_("status").innerHTML = "Upload Aborted";

It works fine If I want to Up Load my current page.
But the image file that I select is not Up Load it.

Additionally I have to say this:

The current page is not saved in a directory but it comes up to the current browser page.
When I try to put any (legal) directory in"POST","");

returns an error. which says:
"Directory Not Found"

I haven't mention for my upload file... that is nowhere.
The `script` I found it in Here

Please assist me on this

That code doesn't save the image to the target url, it POSTs the image to a page with the expectation that that page is a file upload page that reads the file from the form data and saves it somewhere on the target website. As for the app_data folder that is not publicly accessible for security reasons, but as mentioned above you won't need to POST to it anyway.

The url below has an example of the kind of code that needs to exist on the page you POST to

If you want the client to dictate where about the file is saved then you'd need that data in one of the form variables so that the target page knows where to SaveAs, but be aware of the security concerns of doing that, a malicious person could supply any oath they want and could overwrite the files on your server.
