    For a project, we need to upload sometimes large files. An attempted solution using asycn calls and List.Add(File) yielded very low capabilities for uploading files. We are currently using a RadGridView to display documents associated with a given task. Whenever the document selection changes, the properties of the newly selected document are displayed in a seperate view. This is accomplished using event aggregators, and is only a minor detail in regards to my problem.

    The goal of the project is to allow for drag and drop funcitonality. Using an event handler for the drop event we were able to upload very small documents (< 50 KB). This is far too small for our purposes.

    The following solution was presented:


    Is there a way we could implement a similar system of chunking in the event handler of the RadGridView?

    Thank you for your help,

    Hi Nathan,

    I am not sure I understand how you want to implement your uploading logic and how you want to integrate the Upload control with RadGrdiView control.

    Basically the RadUpload control allows you to use a Browse button to select files for upload or you can drop the files on top of it and then either upload them automatically or upload them by hitting the Upload button. But as soon as an upload session starts, it sends a request to the server, where you need to set up a RadUploadHandler. The control allows you to interact with it and the uploaded files pretty much every step of the way - you can have a look at its documentation as it describes its features and functionality.
