I got the following code of Multiple file upload from[^].

But there is an error in the C# (ie. HttpPostedFile has not assigned properly).
Can anyone correct this. This will be very helpful for me.

<form id="form1" runat="server" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<p id="upload-area">
   <input id="File1" type="file" runat="server" size="60" />

<input id="AddFile" type="button" value="Add file" onclick="addFileUploadBox()" />
<p><asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" runat="server" Text="Upload Now" OnClick="btnSubmit_Click" /></p>
<span id="Span1" runat="server" />

<script type="text/javascript">
function addFileUploadBox()
    if (!document.getElementById || !document.createElement)
        return false;

    var uploadArea = document.getElementById ("upload-area");

    if (!uploadArea)

    var newLine = document.createElement ("br");
    uploadArea.appendChild (newLine);

    var newUploadBox = document.createElement ("input");

    // Set up the new input for file uploads
    newUploadBox.type = "file";
    newUploadBox.size = "60";

    // The new box needs a name and an ID
    if (!addFileUploadBox.lastAssignedId)
        addFileUploadBox.lastAssignedId = 100;

    newUploadBox.setAttribute ("id", "dynamic" + addFileUploadBox.lastAssignedId);
    newUploadBox.setAttribute ("name", "dynamic:" + addFileUploadBox.lastAssignedId);
    uploadArea.appendChild (newUploadBox);

        if (!Directory.Exists(UpPath))
    protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        HttpFileCollection uploads = HttpContext.Current.Request.Files;
        for (int i = 0; i < uploads.Count; i++)
            HttpPostedFile upload = file;// Here is the Error.....

            if (upload.ContentLength == 0)

            string c = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(upload.FileName); // We don't need the path, just the name.

            upload.SaveAs("C:\\UploadedUserFiles\\" + c);
            Span1.InnerHtml = "Upload(s) Successful.";
        catch(Exception Exp)
                Span1.InnerHtml = "Upload(s) FAILED.";

You got solution?

But what is file? You haven't assigned or not even declared it. Use following instead.
HttpPostedFile upload = uploads[i];
