    I'm using a strongly-typed partial view for the Grid popup editor and have a couple questions since the upload widget is rendered when the grid's page loads (and therefore there is no real backing model):
    1. How do I specify the initially rendered files using the Files method?
    2. How do I specify a routeValue for the Save and Remove methods based on the model?
    If the control was being rendered using the correct model, I'd want the Upload call to look something like:
           .Async(async => async
               .Save("Attach", "Controller", new { entryId = Model.Id })
               .Remove("RemoveAttachment", "Controller", new { entryId = Model.Id }))
           .Files(files => {
               if (Model.Attachments != null)
                  foreach (var f in Model.Attachments)

    Hi Richard,

    Using the Model is not possible in the current scenario, since as you stated, at the time the template code is appended to the page, there is no model. This is why there is no workaround for displaying the initial files in the current scenario.

    Regarding the question about sending the additional model data to the Save/Remove actions, it could be achieved, but in a slightly different way, which is described in the following documentation page. In the edit event of the Grid, you could store the current model data in some JavaScript variable and then use it in the upload event of the Upload widget in order to attach the additional data.
    var currentModel
    function onUpload(e) { = {
            entryId: currentModel.Id
    function edit(e) {
        currentModel = e.model;
