    I'm using the RadUpload control from the Silverlight toolkit along with the RadUploadHandler on the server to upload files from my browser app.  I'd like to do the same thing from a WinForm using the same RadUploadHandler.  Is there a WinForm version of the RadUpload control that I can use?

    Thanks

    Hi Brian,

    Thanks for writing. We currently do not have the RadUpload. Until now we have not considered implementing RadUpload control, you are the first person asking for it. If there is enough demand in the future we will consider adding it to our portfolio.
    Please write back if you need further assistance.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hello,

    I too want to use a "FileUpload" mechanism on a RadForm.

    I want the user to select a file and then process it further.

    Please point us in the right direction until a control is available...

    Thank you.

    Hello Sunil Shah,

    Thank you for writing. Please specify what features do you need exactly. What are you going to use it for? Do you want to upload to a database? Or maybe a web server? It is a bit odd that you want to use such a control in WinForms application. In ASP.NET there is a server and clients and such a control is necessary while in winforms there is no such distinction. We currently provide RadUpload control in our ASP.NET suite which should serve you pretty well. I am looking forward to your reply.

    Hello Victor,

    I am a BIG fan (and a long-standing customer!) of Telerik web controls (ASP.NET-Ajax). 

    However, in my current project, I need to

    1.  upload a CSV file,
    2.  run a macro in Excel 2007 to transform that csv file,
    3.  save the resulting file as xlsx (excel2007 format),
    4.  execute an SSIS 2008 package on that xlsx file to import the data into a SQL Server table.

    I cannot run Excel 2007 via an asp.net page.  Hence I am having to go a winform application to upload the csv file, then using Excel interop assemblies, run the Excel macro, save to xlsx and finally execute SSIS against that xlsx file.

    Hope I have described it ok.

    Thanks
    Sunil

    Hi Sunil Shah,

    Thank you for writing. You can use OpenFileDialog (please see this external resource). Then you need to send your file over the network. I cannot advise you how to send the file exactly over the network because this goes outside the scope of our support. Do not hesitate to write to us if you have other questions.

    Seemed more fitting to bring this back from the dead.

    Our main product is a silverlight app.  We also have an outlook addin (winforms) that we want to be able to upload email attachments to the server for our use in the silverlight app.  I would like to use the same domain services that are used by the silverlight app if possible.  The upload control would have been nice in this situation.  Any recommendations on how to handle this?

    Hi Sunil,

    Thank you for writing.

    I am happy that you found a solution for your case because we do not have a component which uploads files.

    You can refer this MSDN article, which describes how you can upload a files using FTP protocol

    I hope this helps.
