Hi!
I am developing sharepoint webparts and would like to ask a question.

I have an upload control in C# and i have set the file limit in sharepoint adminsitration as 50MB.
When i attempt to upload a 60MB file, the sharepoint site will throw an exception.

Is there any where or idea how i can catch this exception and redirect to our custom error page or stop the upload and inform the user that the file is too large?

If you want to monitor the size of the file before upload it can be done with Javascript but it's not pretty;

am unable to run activex on my environment here.
Guess they think its a bigger risk.
Thus, my project dont allow it.

Any more other ways i can do a check without uploading the whole thing over?

I;ve heard someone saying about what packet size headers etc...

I've seen stuff related to packet size headers in PHP, but that doesn't help here! www.phpeasystep.com/phptu/3.html

I guess you're back to capturing the exception and displaying a custom error screen.

Easy way to display an error screen with a custom message is to use;

SPUtility.TransferToErrorPage(message)

But doing a try catch can only catch the exception after the WHOLE file is posted upwards?
Is that not?

Sorry... noob

That's right, but alas discounting the javascript/activeX route means we have no way (I'm aware of) of stopping an inappropriate file upload before it happens.

I had a look around for a JQuery method to do this, but it seems to come back to PHP or stuff like this;

But I'm guessing you can't use that.
