    I am trying to check the selected file sizes using IE8.

    ie. Javascript as below:

     $(document).ready(function () {
                    select: onSelect

    Then when trying to retrieve the size in an onSelect javascript event of the selected files,  null is returned for the size of the file.
    See attached jpg of IE8 javascript debugger.

    Is there any workaround for this IE8 issue?

    The size of the uploaded file cannot be retrieved in Internet Explorer 9 and earlier versions because of browser limitations and there is no workaround for this. This functionality is working in IE 10 and in every other modern browser.

    Hello Ed,

    There is no workaround for this problem, as it is a browser limitation, that cannot be overcome.
