I want to be able to set the MaxFileSize and not have to worry about the "maxAllowedContentLength" being smaller and therefore erroring.

Our product currently uses a different third party upload control. Since purchasing telerik controls we have gone ahead and begun replacing them. However, their controls seems to manage uploads differently because it is capable of uploading files larger than the default "maxAllowedContentLength". This is functionality we desire

Hi John,

Which is the third party control that you were using before? It is possible that it is using a different upload mechanism allowing it to bypass the maxAllowedContentLength.

The third party control we are using is Ajax Uploader and yes it does seem to use a different upload mechanism.

Hello John,

I looked at the Ajax Uploader and around their website and according to their FAQ the Ajax Uploader still depends on the maxRequestLength (and maxAllowedContentLength in II7).

All the best,

Their documentation is very poor which is part of the reason we are trying to move over to RadUpload. However from actual experience I know I can upload a 35mb file using ajax uploader but get the old 404.13 error when i try the same file with RadUpload. There is certainly a difference in how it's done.

Hi John Chatt,

We are going to provide a solution for this problem for the upcoming Q3 release. One will be able to upload file as large as they need without the setting the maximumRequestLength property. Stay tuned.
