Problem with partial-page refresh with AJAX AsyncFileUpload in VB.NET

2,217 Views
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I am trying to use AJAX AsyncFileUpload to upload image files to the server. When the image file is uploaded, I want it to immediately appear on the page.

My image to refresh is called "frenchlogo". When the upload event fires, it calls a subroutine AsyncFileUpload2_UploadedComplete which checks and saves the file, and updates the source of the image (frenchlogo.ImageUrl).

The Asyncfileupload and image are in the same Updatepanel.

What am I doing wrong ?

Thanks, Peter
Protected Sub AsyncFileUpload2_UploadedComplete(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As AjaxControlToolkit.AsyncFileUploadEventArgs)
If AsyncFileUpload2.HasFile then
    ' Determine new file name
    fileExtension = System.IO.Path.GetExtension(AsyncFileUpload2.Filename).ToLower()
    newfilename = "flogo-" & Session("sponsor") & fileExtension
    FolderToSave = Server.MapPath("\") & "Userdata\L-" & Trim(Session("Leaguenum")) & "\Advertisement\"

    ' Validate file is of correct type
    fileOK = False
    Dim allowedExtensions As String() = {".jpg", ".jpeg", ".png", ".gif"}
    For i As Integer = 0 To allowedExtensions.Length - 1
        If fileExtension = allowedExtensions(i) Then
            fileOK = True
        End If
    Next
        
    ' Save the file    
    If fileOK Then
        Try
            AsyncFileUpload2.PostedFile.SaveAs(trim(FolderToSave & newfilename))
            Outputmessage = "File uploaded!"
        Catch ex As Exception
            Outputmessage = "File could not be uploaded."
        End Try
    Else
        Outputmessage = "Cannot accept files of this type."
    End If

    ' Update database entry to indicate new banner name
        cmd.Connection = MyConn
        cmd.Connection.Open()     
        cmd.CommandText = "Update sponsors set sponsorlogofr = '" & newfilename & "' where sponsorid = " & Session("sponsor")
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
        cmd.Connection.Close()

    ' Display the output message
    upload2Label.Text = Outputmessage

   End if

frenchlogo.ImageUrl = Foldertosave & newfilename
Showfrenchlogoimages.Visible = "true"

Thank you so much for your help. I am very impressed with the effort you put into this.

It took me a couple of days to figure out how to translate to VB, but it seems to be working now.

Thanks, Peter
