FileUpload Control in ASP.Net

<asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" runat="server" ondatabinding="Button1_Click" />
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" onclick="Button1_Click" Text="Upload" />
<asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server"></asp:Label>
protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (FileUpload1.HasFile)
// HasFile check that there is any file available for uploading or not.
FileUpload1.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("~/NewFolder1/" +FileUpload1.FileName));
Label1.Text = "File Uploaded";
Label1.Text = "You have not specified a file";

The Server.MapPath method maps a specified path to a physical path. In ASP.NET the ~ tilde indicates the root of a virtual path.
