    I use RadUpload to upload multiple files of varying count. I select each file at a time, sometimes more than 10 files.
    I wish that I in the RadUpload "select file" dialogue was able to select multiple files and that the RadUpload detected the number of selected files and automatically added every file to the RadUpload control as a separate "file item".

    Or is this already possible?

    Hi Morten,

    RadUpload cannot select multiple files in one file select box. This is a limitation of the standard <input type=file> elements that RadUpload uses for file selection. Currently, there are no plans for changing this restriction. You can check this code-library: How to upload multiple files using RadUpload (uploading .zip file and extract it on the server)

    Alternatively, you can use RadUpload for Silverlight. See this demo for further details.

    Kind regards,

    I actually love the silverlight upload stuff that telerik is doing, I have swapped out most of my upload stuff for that as it works really, really nice... And I was like you were I had to stop using the radUpload control because the one by one selection stuff so I went to swfUpload and used that instead of the radUpload...

    However I have since removed that for the telerik silverLight demo stuff that paul mentioned if you can use silverlight in your project I highly recomend going this route as it is fast and efficent but if silverLIght is not a option then I would recomend a flash upload it is pretty fast as well, unlike the silverlight option there are a couple of hangUps about flash uploading and that is relative paths act differently in IE versus FireFox, Safari etc. so if you stuggle with that right out the gate just remember to use the full domain path ie: http ://blah/processUpload.aspx etc.

    Hi Paul,

    I'm using the RadUpload with Silverlight. Works fine for uploading multiple files. 
    My requirement is to upload the whole folder not just the files. Is there a way to know the source folder name, so a folder with the same name can be created under the target folder?
    I'm using the code I got from the demo site.

    Hello Puay,

    You should use RadAsyncUpload in order to upload multiple files. Also you can attach only images here in the forums. Please open a support ticket and send us a runnable page demonstrating the issue you're experiencing there.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
