Last Modified: 2012-05-09

I am using  ajax controol tool file upload to uplaod an image and then populate that image in a datagrid.

However what happens if it is the first time that I am uploading something then I get an error
"Unhandled Exception 'dlV' is undefined"

I am assuming this is because it can not find the datagrid

Code below

Please help

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
        function UploadComplete(sender, args) {

            var fileupload = document.getElementById("asyncFileUpload1");
            if (fileupload != null) {
                document.getElementById("asyncFileUpload1").outerHTML = fileupload.outerHTML;


            document.getElementById('lblStatus').innerText = 'Uploading Completed.';


aspx page
               <cc1:AsyncFileUpload ID="asyncFileUpload1" runat="server" UploadingBackColor="LightGray"
                    CompleteBackColor="Lime" OnUploadedComplete="asyncUploadComplere" UploaderStyle="Modern"
                    ThrobberID="Throbber" OnClientUploadComplete="UploadComplete" OnClientUploadStarted="StartUpload"
                    Width="300px" />

            <div class="gallery">
                <asp:DataList ID="dlV" runat="server" RepeatColumns="4" RepeatDirection="Horizontal"
