    You can assing the value to the Hidden Filed like this...

    and call this as the Filename changes in the text or label.


    function setHiddenValue()
    {
    document.getElementById("Hidden1").value = document.getElementById("File1").value;
    }


    On the page load check the value of this hidden field, if there is any set it to the label or text box.

    It was possible in Older Versions of Browsers like IE 6.0 or less. But, latest version of Browsers restricts the user to read the local path of a system from server side for some security reasons. It is wise the store the file in the server first and then, read the server path.
