    I am using the radUpload control but I want to provide my own GUI an Upload button and progress bar.   I put the control on my page and set the Visibility to Collapsed.  I configure the control, the service url, overwrite etc and call the ShowFileDialog() method on the control to browse for a file.  I call the StartUpload method to start the upload and show progress using the ProgressChanged event.

    When I run this with visibility=Collapsed I get a NullReferenceException.  If I run it with Visibility=Visible it works properly, except that the control is visible on my page.  I would like to be able to use the control with Visibility=Collapsed in order to supply my own GUI

    Hi Brian,

    You have 2 options. You can redesign the control by modifying its ControlTemplate, so you modify the complete look and feel, OR you can  set the Opacity property of RadUpload to 0 and this way the control will not be visible. The second choice will be easier for you most probably.
