Hi,

Is there a way to specify the destination folder path when you click on browse button in <input type="file"> rather than opening the default path?

As far as i know ,this cannot be done , because the user interface is under the control of the browser, also i know we could do it in c# and in adobe flex , but not here using javascript or html..
