    Hello, Premkumarm,

    Currently, the buttons of the Upload can be customized only with CSS:


    .k-upload .k-upload-button {
      color: blue;


    If the requirement is to modify the buttons by adding icons and changing the entire appearance, I can convert this to an official public feature request, and based on its popularity we will plan it accordingly.


    Also, I see that the upload button is next to the Upload wherein our rendering the button is under the Upload. This can be achieved by rendering a custom button next to the Upload and uploading the files programmatically. This will require using a controlled mode to keep the files in the state and the getRawFile method to get the real files. This is a short example showcasing a possible approach:

    - Controlled mode:

    - Get raw file method:
