    Hi all,
    Please can you tell me how can i get a filename of already uploaded and renamed file.
    I use FileUploadStarting() event to upload and rename  file (Test.txt -> 123Test.txt).
    I want to catch the new file name in FileUploaded() event but I didn't success.

    P.S. the file is uploaded successfully with the new file name.

    Hi Tihomir,

    You can send the new file name as parameter back to the client from the server. In the RadUploadHandler yuo can ovveride the GetAssociatedData method and return the file name. In the FileUploaded event, you can request the parameter through the HandlerData property:

    // code in the handler
    public override Dictionary<string, object> GetAssociatedData()
        Dictionary<string, object> associatedData = base.GetAssociatedData();
        if (this.IsFinalFileRequest())
            associatedData.Add("NewFileName", this.GetFileName());
        return associatedData;

    private void upload_FileUploaded(object sender, FileUploadedEventArgs e)
        var newName = e.HandlerData.CustomData["NewFileName"];

    Best wishes,
