Hi,

I am tried to set the AllowedMimeTypes property as shown below, but its not working.
string[] allowedMimeTypes = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("epNMAllowableMimeTypes").Split(',');
                if (allowedMimeTypes.Length > 0)
                    RadAsyncUpload1.AllowedMimeTypes = allowedMimeTypes;

In web.cong the Mimetypes are declared as
<add key="epNMAllowableMimeTypes" value="application/pdf,application/msword,application/x-dot,application/vnd.ms-excel,image/tiff,image/png,image/jpeg,image/gif"/>

I am using Telerik.Web.UI.dll(Ver 2010.3.1317.20), IE 7.0 browser, .Net 2.0

I found the below link where something related to this peoperty was fixed.

Thanks,

Hi Raji,

In general AllowedMimeTypes property is inherited from RadUpload control and has no influence on RadAsyncUpload. We will consider , however , implementing such logic (that will take into account  AllowedMimeTypes)

 I will let you know as soon as we take our decision.

Hi Peter,

Is their any way that I can validate the the MImeTypes? You have a demo to display the message when file validation fails. I need similar to that to validate the mimetypes.

Thanks,
Raji

Hi Raji,

I prepared a sample project for you. Please review the attachment.

Please have in mind that such verification is possible only in browsers that support FileApi (Firefox, Chrome, Safari).

Kind regards,

Hi Peter,

I use IE 7.0 so I have not tried your scripts. Will it work still in IE?

Thanks,

Hello,

@Max - yes I agree that is important, but not every browser support FileApi and it is not possible to apply that functionality for every upload module.

@ Raji - unfortunately IE7 is an old browser, which does not implement FileApi interface and the example will not work under it.

Kind regards,

Hello,

Can you please let me know that there are any way by which we can check allowedMimeTypes in RadAsyncUpload control?

We can check it in RadUpload but I need to check it in RadAsyncUpload.

Hi Sunil,

Straight to the point. RadAsyncUpload control has AllowedMimeTypes property but its functionality is not implemented. The above property is part of some legacy code which RadAsyncUpload control inherited from its predecessor RadUpload. The issue is logged and we are going to implement for the next releases.

Hi, has this been implemented yet?  Sounds like it would be extremely useful for filtering out incorrect files.

If not, it shouldn't be exposed to end-developers.

We understand that it's been a while since we have logged this task. Unfortunately we had many other stories to complete which have higher priority. We will do our best to deliver it as soon as we could.
