    Hello,

    I'm wondering if there exists and Async version of the RadUploadHandler.   

    My requirements are such that, after a file has been uploaded to the server, it needs to be processed and the contents pushed to a database.  The files are relatively complex and can involve a large number of database operations.  This has the pontential of taking a few seconds to complete.  It occurs to me, that this should be done in an asynch handler (although I'm not entirely sure of that) so as not to deplete the ASP.NET thread pool with repeated upload requests.

    Does this make sense?  Should I even be using the upload control to accomplish my goals?

    Thanks.
    Alex.

    By the way, I tried locating the documentation for the RadUploadHandler class, but I have not had any luck.

    Hello Alex,

     You can use RadUpload with WCF Ria Services. You need to use the uploaded files on the Server so I think this KB project would be useful in your scenario. As for the documentation, the "UploadHanlder" help page is located in the Features section. You may also find different tips and trick regarding the UploadHandler in the "How To" section. 
    Feel free to ask if you need further assistance.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Petar,

    Thanks for the response.  I was familiar with the KB article you sent.  I'm just concerned that that might be a source of problems later on if the application needs to scale.  Since the processing could take time, this may be a problem.  However, I will try that to start and see how it goes.

    Thanks.
    Alex.
