    I'm using an asp.net 2.0 fileUpload control which works fine.
    What I'd like is that when a user clicks on the browse button the dialog
    shows thumbnails view instead of the default list view.

    Is there any way to acheive this? (vb.net if possible)

    Thanks

    James

    Thanks David

    I think I'll leave it as it is. As you say far too much work - I'm sure my
    client can click on the appropriate button!!!
