    We have an architecture with Silveright app + WCF services. We want to add file upload feature utilizing RadUploadControl and our WCF services. We checked telerik code samples and found that RadUploadControl uses RadUploadHandler which is implemented as ashx handler. Is there any way to use RadUploadControl with WCF services? 

    For example, we look for a method in RadUploadControl we could have overrided, and this method performs function to transfer data to the server. In this case we could have implemented calling our WCF services for transfering data.

    Hello Alexandr,

    The RadUpload control is designed to send requests to the server which can only be processed by the RadUploadHandler that is defined in the RadUpload.UploadServiceUrl property. Basically when you hit the Upload button in the control a POST request is send to the server and an http handler has to process it - the RadUploadHandler is used for that purpose.

    This is why in your scenario it might be better to create a custom upload control. You can use for example such an approach.
