The limitations of the file size are defined on the IIS side. You can read more about that here: http://www.flajaxian.com/flajaxian.com/FileUploader2.0Help.html#RequestLimitations

Hi, I add this solution for the upload multiple files but I put in a SmartPart for sharepoint and I can´t make it work.

When the site is opening send me an error message 'Cant load the file or assambly 'com.flajaxian.FileUploader' or some of dependency. The sistem can´t found the especified file.'

Are there some especifications for use this DLL with webparts or smartparts?

thanks and regards.

I like the control. There are some problems though, but for most uses it is perfect. The css layout is all a bit crazy in a modalPopupExtender from the AjaxToolKit. And trying to get the modalPopupExtender to close programatically after an upload throws a few javascript errors, which it doesn't in MPEs not containing the uploader. Thanks though. It is a good control.

Can I change the name of the uploaded files if I use FileSaverAdapter.

Vladimir Bodurov
Posted on 7/20/2009 9:21:26 AM

Yes you can, like this

<script runat="server"> 
protected void FileNameDetermining(object sender, FileNameDeterminingEventArgs args) 
    args.FileName = "NewName.jpg"; 
<fjx:FileUploader ID="FileUploader1" runat="server"> 
        <fjx:FileSaverAdapter Runat="server" FolderName="UploadFolder"  
            OnFileNameDetermining="FileNameDetermining" /> 

and please if you have further questions post them at http://flajaxianfileupload.codeplex.com/Thread/List.aspx

Vladimir, this is a great control. I'm interested in doing some customization, following your instructions at http://www.flajaxian.com/flajaxian.com/FileUploader2.0Help.html. However, when you mention "In the source of the project in images folder you can find alternative buttons," I'm lost. All I was able to download was the DLL. Where can I get the source code that you refer to?

Thank you very much for your help.

I have tried and working fine most of the time. Some time getting problem for flash hanging. when i am trying to upload again and again the this is happening.
In my testing I have tried with 1GB file also some times just few KB files.
Please fix this problem.

I don't know what the problem is, use Fiddler to find out, most likely you have some sort of update panel that reloads the flash html - this is not allowed! Move it away from the panel.

Very good control !!!!

Intimately, the post is actually the best on this laudable topic. I harmonize with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your future updates. Saying thanks will not just be adequate, for the fantastic lucidity in your writing.

Hi, from Japan.

Thank you for the very nice uploader.

I can't upload any files...
Can you upload these two files?


I don't know why these files aren't uploaded.
Please let me know the reason.

Hi Hatukie,

Sorry I don't have much time for support of this product now. Check if you don't have some http module filters on the server, or ask on the forum.

Posted on 1/31/2011 10:24:01 PM

Hi, Vladimir.

Thank you for your respons.

Posted on 4/26/2011 11:20:57 PM

hi, nice controller. i'm using this control for several months. but suddenly got a problem.
i added the control in to a modalpopupExtender, and when the panel appears in the screen it shows a link button saying "Please Install Adobe Flash Player".

I updated my adobeflashplayer then, but no use. any help would be welcome.
