Uploading a File

So I wanted to upload a file or files from a Windows Application that I was developing, so a quick lookup on MSDN provided the following (link): –

My.Computer.Network.UploadFile ( "C:My DocumentsOrder.txt", _

On the face of it it couldn’t be easier.  If you take a look at the How To article, you can see that it doesn’t explain how to code the web side of the app or what’s required.

After much Googling, I finally come up with the answer, UploadFile is a wrapped for the WebClient.UploadFile Method.   Reading this article provides more information.

The receiving ASPX page or upload.aspx as in the above example, requires the following code.

<%@ Import Namespace="System"%>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.IO"%>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Net"%>
<%@ Import NameSpace="System.Web"%>

<Script language="VB" runat=server>
    Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

        Dim f As String
        Dim file
        For Each f In Request.Files.AllKeys
            file = Request.Files(f)
            file.SaveAs("c:inetpubtestUploadedFiles" & file.FileName)
        Next f

    End Sub

<p> Upload complete. </p>
