    We want to limit the upload filesize. We created a test project using samples on the telerikwebsite. When maximum filesize is reached an error is thrown. What am i doing wrong? Below the code:


    <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
            <%--Needed for JavaScript IntelliSense in VS2010--%>
            <%--For VS2008 replace RadScriptManager with ScriptManager--%>
            <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.Core.js" />
            <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQuery.js" />
            <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryInclude.js" />
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function checkUploadedFilesSize(progressArea, args) {
            //progressArea.confirmed is a custom variable,   
            // you can use another if you want to   
            if (!progressArea.confirmed &&
            args.get_progressData().RadUpload.RequestSize > 1000000) {
                if (confirm("The total size of the selected files" +
                          " is more than the limit." +
                                            " Do you want to cancel the upload?")) {
                else {
                    progressArea.confirmed = "confirmed";
    <telerik:RadUpload runat="server" id="RadUpload1" />
    <telerik:RadProgressArea runat="server" id="RadProgressArea1"  OnClientProgressUpdating="checkUploadedFilesSize" />
    <telerik:RadProgressManager runat="server" id="RadProgressManager1" />
    <asp:Button runat="server" id="Button1" text="Upload" />


    protected void RadUpload1_FileExists(object sender, UploadedFileEventArgs e)
        UploadedFile file = e.UploadedFile;
        string targetFileName = Server.MapPath(RadUpload1.TargetFolder) + RadUpload1.UploadedFiles[0].GetName();
        file.SaveAs(Server.MapPath(@"Upload" + @"\" + targetFileName));

    Hello Dick,

    You can try the approach in the following help article.
    Checking File Size on the Client.

    Hi Shinu,

    Thank you for your reply, but this is the exact example that we used and doesn't work.

    Hello Dick,

    As the help topic notes, the page continues to upload the file even though the confirmation dialog is showing. So I have to assume your uploading a file that doesn't take very long to upload, but is above 4MB in size, so the max file size is reached and the error appears.

    I would re-order your code and just cancel the request and then display an alert that the file size has been reached. Either that, or increase the maxRequestLength in your web.config and see if that helps.

    I hope that helps.

    Hi Kevin,

    The confirmation dialog popup never shows. We recieve a filesize exceeded error right away.
