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

Posted on 2010-09-11

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"

End Sub

I managed to get it working by using OnClientUploadComplete and adding a javascript function that refreshes the updatepanel. Also, the image url is stored in session because OnUploadedComplete seems to call the page seperately without including viewstate. Hope this helps.

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
