    we have an issue with the upload in our MVC application that the full path is pulled back in IE while FF & Chrome only have file name.  Can any one provide any input on this?  TIA

    Hello Sang,

    This is a browser-specific behavior, which depends on a security setting in Internet Explorer ("Include local directory path when uploading files to a server"). Providing the full file path is regarded as a security vulnerability and is by default disabled. The Kendo UI Upload itself strips this information and it is not provided in the widget event arguments. However, the full path will be sent to the server when uploading synchronously, as this process is not controlled by the Upload widget.
