    Fetching a filelist/array of local directory

    How do you use javascript (or another language) to fetch the filelist/array of a user's local directory (given permission, of course...)?

    Not gonna happen with js.

    or another language
    I think with VB script, permissions, IE, and windows you can do it.

    Can't do it in Javascript, but maybe you should consider a java applet or activex control. But maybe you shouldn't because nobody likes those.

    You can try to build ActiveX object and add to your page. This object can read local filelist and then send it to server!
