Many Blazor application require single or multiple files upload - images, documents, audio, video, and other files - as their core functionality. The Blazor Upload Component enables you to easily build asynchronous file upload and offers auto upload, multiple configuration options, file upload progress indication, validation, and events out of the box. With just a couple of lines of code your file upload requirements are implemented in both Blazor WebAssembly (WASM) and Server-side Blazor apps.
The Telerik UI for Blazor Upload component allows you to drag and drop one or multiple files from your file system in order to initiate an upload. Dragging and dropping can be done in the compact view of the Blazor Upload component, or through the integration with the Telerik UI for Blazor DropZone component.
Users can select single or multiple files and upload them at the same time, which is quite useful when uploading large number of documents to a file sharing application, or images to a gallery. In addition to that, for large files you can monitor the progress of the uploaded files. Upon file upload you are presented with option to remove specific files that were part of the initial selection but are not relevant.
The File Upload control offers several built-in parameters to help you easily perform validation of the selected files on the client. You can set restrictions to the allowed size using MinFileSize and MaxFileSize properties, or file format using the AllowedExtensions parameter
Elevate user experience by displaying specific and previously uploaded files in the file list. The Initial Files feature of the Telerik UI for Blazor Upload allows you to save a list of files that the user has uploaded. Once saved you can then display them again when the page is reloaded.
File uploads often require handling of both selected and uploaded files, and various steps of the file upload process. The Upload UI control comes handy with a long list of exposed events to help you easily handle various scenarios and have full control over the uploading. The events arguments provide a list of the files, corresponding actions (upload, deletion etc.) and access to the request objects so you can provide metadata to the server (such as authentication information).
The Upload control has built-in localization support, which makes it easy to localize your Blazor upload to any language that your app may require.
Users can use the arrow keys to navigate between the uploaded files, retry a failed file upload, cancel an upload in progress or delete an already uploaded file—all without taking their hands off the keyboard.
The Telerik UI for Blazor File Upload component supports right-to-left configuration. The RTL functionality is supported by most of our components to accommodate users who communicate in a right-to-left language script, such as Arabic and Hebrew.
The Telerik Blazor Upload component has several built-in themes such as Default (our own styling), Material (based on the Material Design guidelines), Bootstrap (which looks like the Bootstrap styling to integrate better) and Fluent (based on Microsoft Fluent UI). You can easily customize any of out-of-the-box themes with a few lines of CSS, or create new theme to match your colors and branding by using the Telerik SASS ThemeBuilder application.
