Browse Directory Tag?
From a web page I can do <INPUT TYPE="file"> but that wants me to select a particular file. Does anybody have a method of selecting/browsing a directory only? I want to be able to indicate a "path" in a input form C:\my documents, etc so my user can type in the path and/or select the path from a "browse" type of button. I'm open to just about any solution (PHP, JS, HTML, SSI, etc.).

I did something similar for an image manager script using the dTree[1] JavaScript API. I put a link next to a text form field that opened a pop-up window with dTree listing the directory structure. When you click on a folder it updates the text field and closes the pop-up.

[update]Just to be a bit more thorough: I used a perl script with File::Find to biuld the directory structure for the dTree API.[/update]
