    I am trying to prevent users from uploading exe's || zip's, I am calling the below script on the select event .

    this.onSelect = function(e) {
    $.each(e.files, function(index, value) {
                    if(value.extension=='.zip' || value.extension=='.exe') {

    This prevents the file from appearing in the file list but if I do a submit the zip's are going to the server. I could see input type 'file' elements are getting created even though filelist is not displaying the same. Whats the way around for this

    Thank you for reporting this problem. We've fixed it and the fix will be available in the next release. You can use the following workaround for now:
    setTimeout(function() {
        $("input[name='files']:hidden:last", $("#files").parent()).remove();

    As a token of gratitude for your involvement your Telerik points have been updated.

    All the best,
