Is it possible to keep the file name in the fileupload after postback RRS feed

    I have a web form that contains several fileupload controls. For each fileuplaod, I have file extension validation in the code behind. If any of file extension is in the exclusion list, I will give an error message and remind user to re-select a file to upload.

    But the strange thing is after postback, all the file names in those fileupload controls are disappear. The viewstate is set to true for all the fileupload controls.

    Is any way to keep file name in the fileupload control after postback? Or is any third party controls can do this?

    that's because the property is a readonly property. You can't set directly. You could try it with the FileUpload1.Attributes.Add method.
