    Hello Telerik Folk!

    I have a feature request along with my earlier one (encrypt files as they upload).  And that is this:

    On the progress bar, if you can indicate somehow that the file is "uploaded" but is now "assembling" the chunks in blob storage, that would be fantastic.

    Right now the progress bar may indicate 100% done uploading, and it appears to "stall."  Our users think things have stopped. But, just some indicator that the chunks are being pulled together would help a lot.

    Alternatively, a JavaScript event that fires when the upload has finished, but waiting for the blob storage to finish processing, would also work. I can then have an indicator that file X is being processed.

    Thank you!

    -Eric

    Hi Eric,

    With Q1.2014 you will able to implement custom Azure, Amazon or Everlive storage provider and will have access to the uploading file/chunks. Regarding to the progress bar for now it will not be possible to implement it in the described way. We could track only the progress where the file goes to the uploading handler. For the next versions of the control we plan to implement direct upload from the client side. This process could be tracked more precisely.

    Fantastic Peter!

    This is all fantastic news.  Quick question: I noticed in the source code that when the "last chunk" is sent, it is indicated in a post variable.

    What I'm thinking on doing, is watch for that attribute IsLastChunk, and use that to indicate the last chunk has been uploaded, and I can assume until everything finishes that all the "chunks" are being assembled in Azure.

    Right now I am using a technique to send messages from the server to the client while uploading is going on. I would use that to tell the user something like "...assembling chunks..." or something like that.

    If you want to see what I mean, you can sign up for a free account on our website. Then try the uploader.

    Thanks!

    -Eric

    Hello Eric,

    It will be great if you send us a sample project so we could review it and share with the community.
