Hello feras,

You can check this online example. Have in mind it is using the SessionDataSource control which does not persist the changes in the database for example purpose.

All the best,

hi,
thanks for the reply,
but still this example does not answer my question as i am using sql data source and automatic operations.
if you reread my question you would see that i want the db field to be inserted or updated with the image name being uploaded ,
plus i want to compare new file upload with old one if the name is not the same i want the old one to be removed from hard disk and replaced with the new one.
plus as i am reading the manual there is suppose to be auto saving of file how does htis work in my requirement ?
please this is urgent, and i am going to buy telerk full suite today.

Hello feras,

RadUpload does not support automatic uploads in databases. This example is the closest we got to your scenario so you can use it as a start.

ok,
you know what, i am really disappointed, with this short none elaborating answer.
first for me it is misleading that it is not mentioned anywhere that you cant do automatic operation with radupload and grid.
second that example bare bone and does not answer my questions
third the other part of my question was not answered which is how to retrieve the name of the uploaded file and compare it with already uploaded one, and if it is not the same delete the old one and update the image filed name in DB, but if it is the same just overwrite the file and update the image filed name .
now as i understood saving the file part is done automatically  through setting target directory.

i  really hate to say it as i really see you have great set of products, but is this the premium support ?

thx in advanced for listening

Hello feras,

I am sorry for your frustration.

Please note that these are public forums where you can get a help from the community, but there is no guarantee that a Telerik member will respond (although we do that in 99% of the cases). You can use the support ticketing system to get a faster response from Telerik Support.

Now, onto the questions - here is what you can do

1. Do not use TargetFolder or TargetPhysicalFolder because in this way the files are saved to the file system automatically. You need to save the file manually. This will give you an access to the uploaded file's properties like name, extension, contentlength, etc.
2. Having the name of the uploaded file - you can query the database and compare it with the value in the database. If they are different - you can use the .NET framework classes to delete the old file from the disk. Then you can update the database with the new name.

I hope that helps.

The above code has small   mistake.
that is.. once u set targetfolder in properties ..
It is storing the file first b4 going ito the loop and again the same file with the given name.. so twicely storing..
  do not set target folder b4 loop or in  properties.
put radupload1.targetfolder="~/files";  after the loop.

rest for updating is also the same code. and regarding deleting the record is also the  simple asusual.U can try easily

Hi Ramkumar,

The RadGrid provides a GridAttachmentColumn, there please try to  set the UploadControlType property to either RadAsyncUpload or RadUpload for upload to or download from the data source. Please have a look into this online demo. Please elaborate your requirement if it doesn't help you.

Thanks,
Shinu.
