I am using the standard file upload control as a field template in a gridview. I am able to browse for a file from a row in the gridview and then browse for another and upload them but that is backwards. I can only browse for one file at a time and there has to be a row in the grid already. The way the client wanted it to work was to browse for a folder, and have it select all files in the folder or be able to manually select certain files in a folder and click add and have it add that number of rows to the grid with their filename, and file size columns populated with the names. You would then be able to edit things about the row in the grid.
Once you have edited all the information about X number of rows, click upload and have it upload all items in the grid. I thought I could use the AJAX uploader but was having issues binding it to my grid. Is there some other control or can someone suggest a way to make this happen?
It looks like the upload for Silverlight might work. Can you select multiple files and then from the list or collection of files add those as rows to a gridview that has other columns other than just file information. I don't do any silverlight development so I don't know if we could create some sort of Silverlight User Control that had the upload functionality that I could call from my webform?
Below is a link to the form. Basically all the information above the grid pertains to however many documents you add to the grid, then at the end I want to upload the files along with the creation of XML files on the web server etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
