Hello All,

I am not getting full path of uploaded file in Mozilla Firefox and getting from IE. Below is the code I have used to get path.

string strFileName = fileUpload.postedFile.FileName;

I have to read that file and show it on gridview.

Is there any way to get file path from Mozilla.

Thanks in advance.

This is what you can get:
string path = FileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName 

AFAIR, recent browsers do not pass on the full filepath any more because of security reasons.

Have a look at the following discussions on similar topic:
FileUpload loses directory path.[^]
FileUpload.PostedFile.FileName not giving full path in chrome[^]
