I've been thinking about this, and I've come up with a way that'll make it possible for sure, but it'll have to be on the server-side and not the client-side.
In the upload area, you have
a. Text box
b. Browse button
c. Upload button
....all of which is the property of a form.
When a person selects the Browse button (or manually insert their location), the Upload button can collect the data from the Text box, and store it in a datafile, which is then passed to the Browse button, when the Browse button is selected again. Then when a person goes to that page again, and clicks on the Browse button, it'll load the data from the datafile into the Text box of the form.
I could easily construct a form to do that. But like I said, in order for it to work, it'll have to be on the server-side. I'd still like to see it done through the normal traditional tweaking. But I doubt it. I've been wanting to see this feature done on everything I use, that has to go back to the same folders, and yet to this day, I haven't seen a bona-fide way to do so. But I guarantee you the way I explained it will work every time.
As a matter of fact, that should be a new method implemented into forms. A new HTML standard. I know it can be done, but it seems like it would have to be an industry standard that every form user employs in their forms.
Since those 3 (a, b, c) all go together, then it should be rewritten in the HTML standards to allow the code to be mandatory. If I uploaded from a certain folder, it'll always default to that same folder,, until I change the text in the text box.
I think I stumbled onto something. Maybe a breakthrough in HTML. Who knows? It may go well with the industry. I'll see what I can do. At least present my prototype and let them decide. Well, actually, I'll take polls throughout the Internet.
