    I use the SL Upload for uploading a big file.I want to compress the byte[] read from the filestream at client-side,and decompress the byte[] at server-side.And I don't want to read the whole file into the memory,just read the size of the byte[] from the filestream.
    I think I can override SaveChunkData() method of the RadUploadHandler class to decompress data.But I don't know how to do compression at client-side.How can I do it?

    Hi Calvin,

    In this scenario, you can use the e.NewFileStream property of the event arguments of the FileUploadStarting event. There you can pass the compressed stream of the file before it starts uploading. You can decompress it on the server side by overriding the SaveChunkData method and checking the IsFinalFileRequest() method. Compression and decompression is currently not out of the box feature, so you would have to do this manually with any public compression/decompression library.
