    I am uploading few files and i want to return their ids to client. 

    What i am do for that:

    List<int> _listOfIds
    public override Dictionary<string, object> GetAssociatedData()
     if (IsFinalUploadRequest())
                    dict.Add("MyIds", _listOfIds);

      public override void ProcessStream()

     if (IsFinalUploadRequest())

    //CODE to save item to database.
    int savedId=SomeId();
    _listOfIds.Add(savedId );

    Problem here that GetAssociatedData is called earlier than i will recieve item ID!! What i suppose to do?
    Can i send GetAssociatedData() after my manipulations to store data in DB?

    Hi Evgeny,

    In order to implement your solution, you need to override the SaveChunkData() method instead of the ProssessStream() method. I prepared a sample solution demonstrating a possible approach for your scenario - please note that I send over to the client side the id-s one by one thus populating the collection of ids on the client. Let me know if that helps.
