I have found how to initialize the upload widget with an initial list of files that were previously uploaded but I need to know how to append another file to that list from jQuery.

Some background, I have a button on a form that submits information to another remote system.  That remote system will generate a file within 5-10 seconds and add it to my database records with the pertinent information.  A polling process will begin waiting for the file to come from the remote system.  Once the file has been added to the database, I need to add it to the Kendo upload widget along with the initial files that are already there.

 I have the whole process working, and the polling process returns the filepath, filename, and filesize as required by the control but I cannot find any documentation on how to add to the file list after the widget is already initialized.

Hello Fred,

The initial files list cannot be modified via jQuery, but a sample approach would be to destroy and recreate the widget with the new list. I demonstrated the approach in the following example.

I with you a great day!
