When I select a file it is automatically uploaded to the specified temp directory but then when I try to run SaveAs() I get an IOException "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."

FRONT END:              

 <rad:RadAsyncUpload ID="uplProofFile" runat="server" MaxFileInputsCount="1" Width="500" OnInit="uplProofFile_Init"
                    ControlObjectsVisibility="None" OnFileUploaded="uplProofFile_FileUploaded" TemporaryFileExpiration="02:00:00" >
                </rad:RadAsyncUpload>

CODE BEHIND:

    protected void uplProofFile_FileUploaded(object sender, FileUploadedEventArgs e)
    {
                    uplProofFile.UploadedFiles[0].SaveAs(SaveLocation);
    }

Hi John Chatt,

How do you craft the save location propery? Does it contain the full path + the name of the uploaded file? I can't see anything wrong with your code and it should have worked as long as the save location passed to the SaveAs method is correct.

The SaveLocation is the full path and file name. since the IOException is "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process." It would seem that the path the file is saved to is not the issue but accessing the temp file is the problem.

Have tried a few different things but nothings works so far.

Prior to running the SaveAs() function I access   uplProofFile.UploadedFiles[0].InputStream   to generate and MD5 Hash of the file.
This seems to be what is holding access to the file. If i run SaveAs prior to calling   uplProofFile.UploadedFiles[0].InputStream   The file saves but then I get an error on the   uplProofFile.UploadedFiles[0].InputStream   call.
Is there a way to get the MD5 Hash of the InputStream and then run SaveAs();

RESOLVED:

needed to

                var streamForMD5 = uplProofFile.UploadedFiles[0].InputStream;
                md5Hash = Utility.GenerateMD5(streamForMD5);
                streamForMD5.Dispose();
                uplProofFile.UploadedFiles[0].SaveAs(newFile);

this worked

hope that helps

Hello John Chatt,

Alternatively you can use the using keyword. Whenever streams are used  it is a very good idea to use using since it will release the stream for you. Example code:

using(Stream stream = uplProofFile.UploadedFiles[0].InputStream)
{
    md5Hash = Utility.generateMD5(stream);
}
  
uplProofFile.UploadedFiles[0].SaveAs(newFile);

Hi Davide Giavazzoli,

Please invoke the close method of e.File.InputStream after having finished working with him. Translated into code this would work like this:

Thumbnail.Width = Unit.Pixel(200) 
Thumbnail.Height = Unit.Pixel(150) 
  
Dim imageData As Byte() = New Byte(e.File.InputStream.Length) {} 
e.File.InputStream.Read(imageData, 0, e.File.InputStream.Length) 
Thumbnail.DataValue = imageData
e.File.InputStream.Close()

Does the issue persist?

Sorry, but the problem persists (I tried before also with dispose method without any result);
"Il processo non può accedere al file perché è in uso da un altro processo". means "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process" ... Maybe adding dinamically the control inside another custom control let the process hung ?
I'm just trying to load a file and have a preview before doing the postback and save that file and other infos. May I try with some complete example ? Have you got any with save method executed ?
Thanx

Hello Davide Giavazzoli,

Please excuse me, my bad. Here is the correct code that you need to use:

Thumbnail.Width = Unit.Pixel(200)
Thumbnail.Height = Unit.Pixel(150)
 
Dim fileStream As Stream = e.File.InputStream
Dim imageData As Byte() = New Byte(fileStream.Length - 1) {}
fileStream.Read(imageData, 0, CInt(fileStream.Length))
Thumbnail.DataValue = imageData
fileStream.Close()

The problem here is that e.File.InputStream always return new instance of the stream to the file, therefore
e.File.InputStream.Close does not invoke close on any previously used instances but only the current one.

Hello mehdi ghasemi,

The problem that you face is the same. You need to obtain only a single reference pointing to the uploaded file stream and close it after having finished working with it. This how your code should look like:

bool valid = false;
        using (Stream fileStream = RadAsyncUpload1.UploadedFiles[0].InputStream)
        {
            using (System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(fileStream))
            {
                if (image.Width >= 1024 && image.Height >= 768)
                {
                    valid = true;
                }
            }
        }
 
        if (valid)
        {
            RadAsyncUpload1.UploadedFiles[0].SaveAs(MapPath("~/banners") + RadAsyncUpload1.UploadedFiles[0].FileName, true);
        }

Just for the record, I had the same exception when saving the file and using the following code:
protected void onModeleUploaded(object sender, FileUploadedEventArgs e)
        {
            if (uplModele.UploadedFiles.Count > 0)
            {
                foreach (UploadedFile f in uplModele.UploadedFiles)
                {
                    string file = f.GetName();
                     
                    f.SaveAs(file, true);
                }
            }
        }

The problem with that code is that you read and write to the same file. You need to save your file to another location for that code to work.
Like that for exemple:
string file = Path.Combine(MapPath("~/App_Data/Template/"), f.GetName());
f.SaveAs(file, true);

                      foreach (UploadedFile file in files)
                      {
                        try

Why do you need this ? Maybe this does not close fast enought... Just remove the 3 lines... (maybe I missed something?)
BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(file.InputStream);
byte[] FileData = br.ReadBytes((int)file.ContentLength);
br.Close();

Just build your filename and write to it...
The rest is done for you...

Same issue here. Not sure why it's giving me the error.

protected void RadAsyncUpload1_FileUploaded(object sender, FileUploadedEventArgs e) {
 
    ListViewItem lvwItem = lvwItems.EditItem;
    RadAsyncUpload upl = (RadAsyncUpload)lvwItem.FindControl("RadAsyncUpload1");
 
    string target = MapPath(upl.TargetFolder);
    foreach (UploadedFile file in upl.UploadedFiles) {
 
        using (Bitmap originalImage = new Bitmap(file.InputStream)) {
            System.Drawing.Image cloneImage = (Bitmap)originalImage.Clone();
             
            // Resize the picture to max 200 * 200
            Size mySize = new Size(200, 200);
            cloneImage = Imaging.resizeImage(originalImage, mySize);
            Bitmap newImage = new Bitmap(cloneImage);
 
            // Convert to jpg if necessary
            if (file.GetExtension() != ".jpeg" || file.GetExtension() != ".jpg") {
                Imaging.saveJpeg(Path.Combine(target, file.GetNameWithoutExtension() + ".jpg"), newImage, 100);
            }
 
            mySize.Height = 50;
            mySize.Width = 50;
            cloneImage = Imaging.resizeImage(originalImage, mySize);
            Imaging.saveJpeg(Path.Combine(target, file.GetNameWithoutExtension() + "_lille.jpg"), newImage, 100);
 
            uploadedFileName = Path.Combine(target, file.GetNameWithoutExtension() + ".jpg");
        }
    }
}

I tried cloising and disposing the file.inputstream, but no go.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks :)

My error was caused by the line:

using (Bitmap originalImage = new Bitmap(file.InputStream))

I replaced that with:

using (Stream fileStream = file.InputStream) {
                        using (System.Drawing.Image originalImage = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(fileStream)) {

Problem solved :)

I do UploadedFile.SaveAs(path) it saves file to disk successfully, this uploadedFile has one property InputStream , this inputstream becomes null as soon as .SaveAs method is completed. i want to use this inputstream after SaveAs method is executed. How i can achieve this ?

public void Upload(UploadedFile file, string entityValue, string path, string domain, string org, string repNum, string entityType)
        {
               file.SaveAs(path); // This save file to local disk successfully

// After above line executes file.inputStrream becomes null and my obj.Upload method fails, how to fix this ?
               
                obj.Upload(file, entityValue, path, domain, org, repNum, entityType);
