    Is there a way I can get the file properties before the upload actually takes place? I would like to access the file size and last modified date.

    Hi Mark Davison,

    The standard <input type=file> html elements we use in RadUpload do not allow access to the properties of the selected files for uploading. Moreover, the browsers restrict the javascript engine from file system access which prevents us from getting the properties of the selected files.

    RadProgressArea displays some properties like file size because it starts monitoring the upload progress after it has begun. That's why it "knows" the size of each file, selected for uploading.
