    I am using RadAsyncUpload for upload files from Client machine to server.
    While uploading i would like to read the file(pdf,word,jpg) properties
    Like File Created Date ,File Modified Date , File Accessed Date, Title, Subject, Author

    How can i read these properties?

    Thank you

    Hello Venkata,

    Can you please clarify where do you want to read those properties? The server-side ones are not available until the file upload is completed and FileUploaded event is fired.

    On the client you can use the below code, which works in the browsers that support File API (FireFox, Chrome, Safari and IE9+):

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function fileSelected(sender, args) {
            var input = args.get_fileInputField();
            if (input && input.files) {
                var file = input.files[0];
                // do something with file
    <telerik:RadAsyncUpload runat="server" OnClientFileSelected="fileSelected"></telerik:RadAsyncUpload>
