Hi,
   I would like my web application to browse for a file, using the
common upload file browse button, but I don't want it to upload the
actual file itself I just want to send the absolute path text back to
the web server.
All my effort so far have resulted in the actual file been uploaded
which takes time, and as I say I just want the text path been sent back
to the server.

Would anyone know how to do this?

Thanks.
Dan.
