    Hi guys,

    I've been attempting to create and aspx page that will automatically launch the select window, as if the user had clicked the "Browse" button, as soon as the page loads.  I was able to launch the window successfully using a new button I created myself (ID "RunMe"), and as you can see I've tried a couple different methods in the code below to try and launch the window on page load (document.ready and an onload function call in the body tag).  I added in the timeouts in case the call was happening before the control finished loading.  I'm testing in Chrome Version 48.0.2564.97 m.

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="NewFileUpload.aspx.cs" Inherits="CYBERWebPortal.NewFileUpload" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <script src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
            function OnClientFileUploaded(sender, args) {
                //var contentType = args.get_fileInfo().contentType;
                __doPostBack('RadAsyncUpload1', '');
            function OnClientClicking(sender) {
                setTimeout(function () {
                }, 100);
            function FinishedLoading(sender) {
                setTimeout(function () {
                }, 900);

            $(document).ready(function () {
                setTimeout(function () {
                }, 900);


    <html xmlns="">
    <head runat="server">
    <body onload="FinishedLoading()">
            <button type="button" id="RunMe" onclick="OnClientClicking()">Test</button>
            <p><strong> Your test was successful. You have reached doc upload!</strong></p>
                <div style="display:inline-block;" > 
                    <telerik:RadScriptManager runat="server" ID="RadScriptManager1" >
                    <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.Core.js" />
                    <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQuery.js" />
                    <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryInclude.js" />
            <telerik:RadAsyncUpload ID="RadAsyncUpload1" 
                    Localization-Select="Upload"  InputSize="25" 
                    EnableInlineProgress="false" >

    Hello David,

    Opening the Select dialog window when the page loads without any user interaction, clicking a button for example, would not work in all browsers due to security reasons. We have a forum thread, in which you can find more information about this behavior.
