    We have a working solution, which uses RadUpload. The client is of course a Silverlight client.
    Now, we need to add support for more clients, namely Flash, iPhone and Android. It would be ideal if we could keep the same server-side logic, but mimic the client-side behaviour. In other words - can we implement the "RadUpload" client component on the three other components? If so, any ideas/code to share how to accomplish this?

    Is this even legally supported, or does it break the Telerik legal agreement?

    Hello Fredrik,

    We don't have any samples illustrating how to rewrite the Upload control client-side so that you can use it in Flash, iPhone or Android. Basically the RadUpload's client side sends POST requests when the Upload button is hit and the RadUploadHandler on the server is designed to listen for these requests.

    You can definitely try to design your own Upload control for each targeted environment and configure it to send POST requests to the server as the RadUpload for Silverlight client-side does. However, this might take a lot of time and efforts and it might be better to create an IHttpHandler on your server to handle the requests from your custom upload controls, instead of using the RadUploadHandler to handle all requests.

    Best wishes,
