    I'm currently working on uploader to sharepoint. My problem is that often when SP is down uploader still shows that everything went ok. Therefore I would like to make sure that if SP failed, (even though uploader managed to save it ok to local folder) error message is displayed. Possibly I would like to reuse uploader's error showing capabilities rather than lets say alert or error box.

    I did some research and I found one person on this forum with similar issues.

    This is my code

    // HANDLER
    public override bool SaveChunkData(string filePath, long position, byte[] buffer, int contentLength, out int savedBytes)
                bool ret = base.SaveChunkData(filePath, position, buffer, contentLength, out savedBytes);
                if (base.IsFinalFileRequest() == true)
                                // Moving file to SP
                            catch (Exception e)
                                Error = "Couldn't upload file to SP.";
                                this.AddReturnParam(RadUploadConstants.ParamNameMessage, Error);
                                this.AddReturnParam(RadUploadConstants.ParamNameSuccess, false);
                                this.AddReturnParam(RadUploadConstants.ParamNameFileName, this.GetFileName());
                                this.AddReturnParam(RadUploadConstants.ParamNameFinalFileRequest, true);
                                this.Result.Add("Error", Error);
    // CLIENT
    private void FileUploader_FileUploadFailed(object sender, FileUploadFailedEventArgs e)
                RadWindow.Alert(new DialogParameters
                        Header = "Upload failed",
                        Content = e.HandlerData.Message

    On client side e is empty with no messages at all. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Luke,

    Have you tried using the AddReturnFileParam method instead of AddReturnParam? Also, in your code I cannot see what value is returned from the SaveChunkData method? Are you returning true or false?

    What would be the recommended way to return the error to the client from SaveChunkData?  If you add the below return parameters and return false from SaveChunkData the warning icon appears next to the file with issues, but the progress bar color is still green and the overall progress bar (multiple files) appears as if it is stalled under 100% and is still colored green with no indication that there was a problem.

    AddReturnFileParam(RadUploadConstants.ParamNameMessage, success.Message);
    AddReturnFileParam(RadUploadConstants.ParamNameSuccess, false);
    AddReturnFileParam(RadUploadConstants.ParamNameFinalFileRequest, true);

    Hi Md,

    The progress bar with the overall details keeps track only of those files that passed all validations and that are valid for upload - RadUpload.CurrentSession.ValidFiles collection. This is why if one file isn't valid for upload, its size won't be included in the progress bar calculations and the ProgressBar will display only the upload progress of the items in the ValidFiles collection of the session.

    Also, please keep in mind that when you validate a file in the SaveChunkData method, you have to call the base.SavaChinkData() method only after the file passes the validation. Otherwise even if the SaveChunkData method returns false, once its base method is called for the invalid file, the file will be uploaded.

    All the best,
