    *** SOLUTION FOUND (see EDIT below) ***

    I have followed some of the examples for declaring my MVC controller method for use with the Upload component.  My upload handler declaration is as follows:

    public ActionResult Upload(IEnumerable<HttpPostedFileBase> attachments, long inventoryID, long imageType)
    {
    }

    I have set my Upload control to use Async.  However, whenever I try to upload a file, the attachments parameters is always passed null.

    I have also tried:
    • Renaming attachments to files
    • Declaring IEnumerable<HttpPostedFileBase> as IEnumerable<HttpPostedFile>
    • Declaring the attachments parameter as both HttpPostedFileBase and HttpPostedFile (singular

    I have written some JavaScript (as the Upload event) to pass the additional parameters (inventoryID and imageType) which are always passed successfully.

        function imageUploadUpload(e) {
            e.data = { inventoryID : @Model.InventoryID, imageType: imageType };
        }

    I have tried removing the Upload event/handler to see if this makes a difference, but still have the same problem.

    Any idea what is going on?

    Thank you.

    *** EDIT ***

    I found the solution here.  The name of the Upload component must match the name of the parameter that holds the HttpPostedFileBase.  I had named my Upload component imageUpload.  When I renamed the parameter to imageUpload, it worked fine!

    I ran into this exact same issue.

    I can confirm that after naming the parameter in the controller the exact same name as what I named the KendoUI upload control, it worked.  Thanks Steven.

    Name attribute of the  KendoUI upload control should be same as the parameter name of Controller. In following example it is 'fille'

    <input name="file" id="fileUploader" type="file" />


     public ActionResult UploadFile(HttpPostedFileBase file, String subject, String doc, String ref)
    {
    }
