I Can't use a FileUpload control in a UpdatePanel (Ajax) ?

This structure don’t have problems.

>          [ MasterPage [ ContentPlaceHolder [ UserControl [ FileUpload ] ] ] ]

But I have this structure:

>          [ MasterPage [ ContentPlaceHolder [ UpdatePanel [ UserControl [ FileUpload ] ] ] ]


With this code I have the error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
>          Dim uploadImage As System.Drawing.Image
>          Dim Temp As New FileUpload
>          Temp = FileUpload1
>          uploadImage = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(Temp.PostedFile.InputStream)

I try
FindeControl(“FileUpLoad1”)
UpdatePanel.FindeControl(“FileUpLoad1”)
UserControl.FindeControl(“FileUpLoad1”)
FindControl(“UpdatePanel”).FindeControl(“FileUpLoad1”)
FindControl(“UserControl”).FindeControl(“FileUpLoad1”)

ETC !!!...

But nothing…

Note: ASP.NET, VB.NET, VS2005 and Ajax 1.0

You're likely running into an issue with the naming of nested controls. Try:

FindControl(FileUpload1.ClientId)

>      Dim uploadImage As System.Drawing.Image
>      Dim Temp As New FileUpload
>      Temp = FindControl(FileUpload1.ClientID)
>      uploadImage = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(Temp.PostedFile.InputStream)

Might be UniqueId instead of ClientId... I can never remeber which to use. And you may have to replace $ with _ or vice-versa.

The easiest way to deal with this is to run your page, look at the source code, find the control you're interested in and note it's name. Then put a breakpoint on the Temp = line... check to see what FileUpload1.ClientId and FileUpload1.UniqueId are...

ClientID      "ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ControlUpLoad1_FileUpload1"      String
UniqueID      "ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$ControlUpLoad1$FileUpload1"      String

What's the control name in the web page source? (That is.. run the app, surf to the page, right-click >> view source... this will get you the HTML)

So... FindControl(FileUpload1.UniqueID) should get the control.

HOWEVER.... why don't you just refer to it as FileUpload1 on the server side?
Dim uploadImage As System.Drawing.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(Fileupload1.PostedFile.InputStream)

Are you calling FindControl on the page or the user control? You need to ask the parent container for the control IIRC.

What about UserControl.FileUpload1 on the server side?

The problem is this...
The UsuerContro it's on the server but Ajax make noise.
If I Put the UserControl on a free Ajax page works perfect.
