how to select multiple files from file upload dialog
I am using input type file to upload files.
How can I select multiple files form the file browser dialog that appears when I click upload button. As we can only select only one file at a time. Actually I want to select multiple files and upload all those files at the same time I want the file browser dialog to appear only once

There is a multiple file upload widget in Ext extension forum. (I dont know if it is updated for 2.0.) check it out.Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.

I was about to post the exact same question. The (working) widget you speak of does not allow you to select multiple files with one open file dialog. There is a version of it called SWFUpload (http://extjs.com/learn/Extension:SWFUpload) that does have this functionality of allowing you to select multiple files with one open file dialog, however it was unfinished due to a big linux-firefox bug. If there is a way to use the open file dialog that SWFUpload uses with the other widgets, that would be super.
Additionally, the working widgets come with the condition of "not for serious use." I need components for serious use! (http://extjs.com/learn/Extension:UploadForm)

I have this exact need. Have you managed to make it work?

Not possible with current HTML 4
Multiple selection is only avaiable with flash ou java applets.
It is comming for HTML 5. Lets wait...
