I remember some options where Ajax like(No post back world) file upload was supported,
- Hidden iframe
- Using flash object (Though i still have curiosity of why SWF is used ? and what advantages it offer ?)
However by looking at blogs it appears that HTML 5 is promising, i tried some small examples and it really works 🙂
But recently i found that gmail has new drap drop file feature implemented using the HTML 5 (No flash).
Can some one guide me how this can be achieved and what all i need to prepare ? Is there change in XMLHTTP…(Ajax object) api in HTML 5 ?
Any threads will be helpful

This allows you to select multiple files from the file-chooser dialog without using flash
The uploading itself still has to be done by JS or PHP or [yourfavorite]. A nice helper could be
