    Is it possible to change the target folder from the client side?  I have a combobox with a list of possible folders, and when the selection is changed, I want to change the target folder for the upload.

    function OnClientSelectedIndexChanged(sender, eventArgs) {
          var item = eventArgs.get_item();
          var upload = $find("<%= RadAsyncUpload1.ClientID %>");
          upload.TargetPath = ???
          alert("You selected " + item.get_text());

    Alternatively, is it possible to do this on the server side before the files are moved from the temporary directory to the target directory?  I can obviously change the value in a postback, but the upload appears to be happening before my event is called.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Mathew,

    One way to achieve this scenario is to use the PostbackTriggers property of RadAsyncUpload that determines which Postback will upload the files. I am attaching a sample test project that reproduces it.

    Hope this will be helpful.
