Get file name of uploaded file


 Is there a way to grab the full name of the file that is being uploaded?  The software automatically changes it when uploading.

If you are using the FileUpload control you can use the PostedFile.FileName property.  If you need just the name and not the path, you can use Path.GetFileName(fileControl.PostedFile.FileName)

Is this what you are looking for?

Thanks Ben, but have you ever looked at the Classified Starter kit?  It does not use the FileUpload control.

I have not. What is the control that it is using? Is it a <input type="file" />?  If so, that has a posted file property on it too.

File Upload Problem
Hi Everyone,I was grateful to be able to download the code for uploading files into a folder from Sreedhar's web page. The code works well, but whenever there is another new file with the same file name being uploaded into the destination folder, the old file will be replaced. I am wondering if there is any way to solve this problem (How about adding a number to the new file's name, e.g. File1.doc, if there is an existing File.doc?) I am an absolute beginner and any help is deeply appreciated.The original code is as follows: <%@ Page Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/MasterP...

Do you take a different approach for unique file names? I use a guid to same the file with a unique name: You can see it here:

How to get file extension of uploaded file
Heres a simlpe one. How do i get the file extension of an uploaded file or any file for that matter without using any of the substring or split functions.
