    Hi,

    I am implementing a kendo upload widget in a web application. In this application, the user will need to upload an excel file that is in a predetermined directory. Is it possible to set the default starting point on the select files dialog box to be in the root of this directory so that they do not have to click down to it? The user may not even have direct access to the directory itself, they may only be able to reach it through this application.

    Also, if this is possible, would it be possible to choose a sub directory starting point based on a variable value the user enters into a text box? The directory is pretty large (over 750,000 folders) and any way to narrow down the search for a file will greatly enhance productivity.

    Thanks

    Hello,


    The current requirement is not supported. It cannot be implemented due to browsers security reasons.
