I have a similar requirement - I have a custom submit button - I need to do some validation on clicking it and then trigger the upload. But I want this same functionality in @progress/kendo-react-upload component , instead of jquery.
I am able to hide the buttons using showActionButtons: false, but not able to get any config, which would give me a handle to trigger upload. Tried $(".k-upload-selected").click() from within my react app, but $(".k-upload-selected") returns null, when showActionButtons: false, unlike the case when showActionButtons: true.
However, this would not be the ideal approach to use $(".k-upload-selected").click() from within my react app.
Please let me know how to trigger upload on click of custom button in kendo-react-upload component ?
