Hi Ray,

You can execute the following statement after initialization of the widget:

$("#files").closest(".k-upload").find("span").text("my text");

#files is the ID of the initial <input> element.

Thank you Dimo, it worked!  But after I applied my text "+ Upload Image" like below 
$("#files").closest(".k-upload").find("span").text("+ Upload Image");

the button becomes big with the text "+ Upload" on one line and " Image" squeezed to a 2nd line, so is there a way to update the css of this button to make the width longer and the font smaller so all the text could fit on 1 line.  
Like this, but it didn't work,

$("#files").closest(".k-upload").find("span").css("width", "200px");

or 
$("#files").closest(".k-upload").find("span").css("font-size", "9px");


Thanks a lot!
Ray.

Hi Ray,

The width of the select button is determined by the following CSS rule:

.k-upload-button
{
      width: 86px;
}

.k-upload-button is a CSS class of the parent <div> element of the <span> that you are already familar with. You can either set an inline width with Javascript or override the CSS rule.
