How to open local system folder from the browser
July 08, 2014
I'm working on some stuff, wherein the user downloads the files from internet to his local machine. I'm able to catch the path of the folder where user wants to download the file from SaveAs prompt. Now my requirement is , i want to provide a link button or a button on the web page and assign this is folder path dynamically so that when the user clicks on it, it should open the local system folder where he has downloaded the files.
string myDocspath =Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments);
string windir = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("WINDIR");
System.Diagnostics.Process prc = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
prc.StartInfo.FileName = windir + @"\explorer.exe";
prc.StartInfo.Arguments = myDocspath;
Work fine with local system, if i host the application in IIS , the above code snippet wont work
Thanks in advance,

c# display images from local drives
This article helps you to display an image from your local drive
Display Images from Local Drives
Normally we will have the images inside the folder in our application root folder. The source selector dialog box will point to the application folder only, there is no direct option to select the images existing outside the application folder but there is a work around for this to display the images available in the physical drive. ofcourse it is really meaningless to set the source of the image in the physical drive. Rare cases will be there to display the already available image in the local drives for some scenario.
Let us see in detail on how to display the images from our local folder
Methods of Implementation
As a first step, we can have a new aspx page, In my example i have named the page as "SampleImage.aspx".
In the page load event of the SampleImage.aspx.cs we can have the below lines of code;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
Response.ContentType = "image/png"; // for .png extension
string PhysicalImageName = @"C:\filing.png";
Now we can get easily set the source of the image in the Target pages using the below line of declaration in the aspx page as;
<img src="SampleImage.aspx" alt="Admin" runat="server"/>

You can do this using IE Only. But for this you have to enable the activex control of IE Other wise use node.js or HTMLS or Any advanced Java script framework.
