Is there a way to automate uploading file in a web page using html file input control?

I used a form with a web browser control on it to automate the process of connecting to a website entering the login and password and finish the process of uploading a file.

As you navigate to the upload page i can't get the input file control to work automatically because the value property is read only and here is the code


HtmlDocument loginPage = wb.Documanet;

loginPage.All["file1" ].SetAttributes("value", @"C:\A\A.txt");              //this doesn't work


Your help is appreciated. 

Mark as an answer if it helps.

I dont think you can automate the upload file process in the regular file upload control that ships with because you can not set the file to the fileupload control its just a read only property.try to search for a third party control which will do the process.

I'm quite agree with Haissam, since such behaviour is a huge security risk to users.
And the browser will try to prevent this from happenning.

Posting filepath in file upload control in .NET to the next page and uploading the file from second page
In our application (using C# .NET) there is a form with file upload options. After filling up the form details, the summary of the details need to be shown in the next page before committing the information into the database. Right now, Server.Control is used to transfer the contents to the next page and the form details are retrieved using Request.Form["control id"]. But this is not working for File upload control alone.File upload can not be done in the first page itself, as the foreign key in File upload table gets updated only in second page after confirmation. Therefore, is th...

I have a web user control being used by another web user control, but the one being used will not display the labels in the resx file.
I am using DotNetNuke version 3.13 (might be 3.013) on a Window's XP machine, SP2. I have what I find to be an extremely odd situation. I have a project called TDS.Controls. This project is a web control library. Each control has its own resx file, which is located in the App_LocalResources directory. Each control inherits from Framework.UserControlBase, just like DotNetNuke's User control in DNN\Controls\User.ascx.vb. As a matter of fact, this control is doing the exact same thing I am trying to do. It is a web user control with its own resx file being used by another web user control (See ...
