    Hi I am trying to build a content submission form that will allow the user to upload a number of files as part of a job, the files would be uploaded to a folder created for the new job, the data for the job would then need to be stored in the database the form would have a number of input boxes dates etc and each job would have an id. when the job needs to be checked all the data needs to be shown to the user including links to the attached file just for that job.

    I understand the basics of a form how would I go about adding multiple files etc I am looking for walkthroughs or tutorials that can take me step by step I am using studio 2008 with user member controls and ASP.NET 3.5 with SQL Express on windows 7 x64 I have not configured IIS yet

    Hello mike john,

    I suggest that you start with the online demos of RadUpload. There are examples of how to upload multiple files, manipulate the uploaded files and manually save them to disk. The demos can be found here.

    I hope this will help you to get started.

    Best wishes,

    I'm thinking of purchasing the AJAX package. But I have one question. Is it possible to enable multiple file upload within a single upload control?

    The samples you are talking about uses multiple file input controls but I am looking for a feature to select multiple files with the use of a single button. An example of this feature can be found here: (I think it is secretly using flash for the multiple file browse dialog).

    Is this a default feature already? Or do I have to program this specific feature myself into the Image Browser/Upload dialog, is this possible?

    Hello Matty,

    The standard browser's "Browser for File" dialog does not allow you to select more than one file at a time. This is a limitation of the browser and the input type=file control.

    The problem is solved in RadUpload for Silverlight where you have control over the file types that are shown and you can select multiple files at once.

    I invite you to check our integration demo - RadUpload for Silverlight in an ASP.NET Page

    If using Silverlight is not an option for you then you can check this code library - it allows you to upload a zip file and then un-zip it on the server.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
