If I use any file upload control (of Asp or jquery),I want to do this like this way---

I have a webmethod which is called by save button.There is my code for saving data to database.Now I want to acess the uploaded file name in this webmethod so that I can set the path to save in database and then I want the file will be uploaded to server folder.

I have found a code by webhandeller which is good and files are uploading to server folder but I need the file names so that I can save the path in database.

Can anyone help me?

Done by me using handler by setting url property of uploader.

Here's how I do it:
/// <summary>
/// Save an upload into the database.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="fl">Control containing the download.</param>
/// <returns>Status as a string</returns>
private string SaveUpload(FileUpload fl)
    if (fl.HasFile)
            int version = 0;
            string filename = Path.GetFileName(fl.FileName);
            byte[] filedata = fl.FileBytes;
            string strCon = ConnectionStrings.Download;
            using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(strCon))
                // Check version - if the file exists in the DB already, then increase version number.
                using (SqlCommand ver = new SqlCommand("SELECT MAX(version) FROM dlContent WHERE fileName=@FN", con))
                    ver.Parameters.AddWithValue("@FN", filename);
                    object o = ver.ExecuteScalar();
                    if (o != null && o != System.DBNull.Value)
                        // Exists already.
                        version = (int) o + 1;
                // Stick file into database.
                using (SqlCommand ins = new SqlCommand("INSERT INTO dlContent (iD, fileName, description, dataContent, version, uploadedOn) " +
                                                       "VALUES (@ID, @FN, @DS, @DT, @VS, @UD)", con))
                    ins.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ID", Guid.NewGuid());
                    ins.Parameters.AddWithValue("@FN", filename);
                    ins.Parameters.AddWithValue("@DS", "");
                    ins.Parameters.AddWithValue("@DT", filedata);
                    ins.Parameters.AddWithValue("@VS", version);
                    ins.Parameters.AddWithValue("@UD", DateTime.Now);
            return string.Format("{0} uploaded, version = {1}", filename, version);
        catch (Exception ex)
            return "The file could not be uploaded. The following error occured: " + ex.Message;
    return "Please select a file.";

Just call that from your save button and pass the upload control to it.
