ASP FileUpload Control Upload Simple Status Message

Hi All,

I have 3 standard ASP.Net FileUpload controls of which I check and upload any files that have been selected within 1 button OnClick event.

I have seen various upload progress bar solutions including AJAX that provide feedback on how long you have left etc.. but all I want is to be able to display a simple message stating that an upload is in progress and then for that message to disappear when the upload has been completed.

Can anyone share code with me that would achieve this in it's simplest form as I am being pushed for time by my client i'm afraid.

I would have though that I could execute code before the first file upload that would display a message and then execute another piece of code after the 3rd upload, to hide the message. But this doesn't work.

Many thanks in advance,

Rit


protected void btnUpload_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)
{
if (FileUpload1.HasFile)
{
   //Upload stuff
}
if (FileUpload2.HasFile)
{
   //Upload stuff
}
if (FileUpload3.HasFile)
{
   //Upload stuff
}
}

Open in new window

No it a message won't display as the entire process is completed before control is passed back to the display. Without dipping into threading, which reading your time constraints I guess you do not want to do, the simplest option would be to attach a piece of jQuery code to the button, showing an upload message when it is clicked, then response the server side code at the end of the upload, you could then detect this with more jQuery or in the page load event.

Hope you get what I'm suggesting, if not post back.

To get around threading, you could open a new window that displays the progress of the download. Then, set up a very basic server side program that checks periodically, and when needed, update the window with the progress of the download. Not super elegant, but it should work.

You can use AsyncFileUpload from the ASP.NET AJAX Toolkit. I've uploaded the example, please  review.
Also you can review the example here http://www.asp.net/ajax/ajaxcontroltoolkit/Samples/AsyncFileUpload/AsyncFileUpload.aspx
