This work fine for ASP:Button, but I'm working with MVC.

- How do I code alert box if file upload is empty

- asp:button -
<asp:FileUpload ID="fileImageUrl" ClientIDMode="Static" runat="server" size="40" />

<asp:Button ID="btnUpload" 
         ClientIDMode="Static" 
         Text="Upload Picture" 
         runat="server" 
         OnClientClick="return validateUpload();" 
         onclick="btnUpload_Click" />

<script type="text/javascript">
        function validateUpload() {
            if (document.getElementById("fileImageUrl").value == "") {
                alert("Please select an image to upload.");
                return false;
            }
            return true;
        }
    </script>

Have you tried adding in your Javascript?

e.g.

@using (Html.BeginForm("Upload", "FileManager", null, FormMethod.Post, 
               new { enctype = "multipart/form-data", @class = "myform" }))
        {
            <label>File Upload</label>
            <input type="file" name="filename" style="padding: 2px 5px"/>  
            <br />   
            <br />       
            <input type="submit" value="Upload File" style="padding: 2px 5px" onclick="return validateUpload();" />

<script type="text/javascript">
        function validateUpload() {
            if (document.getElementById("fileImageUrl").value == "") {
                alert("Please select an image to upload.");
                return false;
            }
            return true;
        }
    </script>

onclick is standard Javascript. OnClientClick is just special notation for ASP.NET Web Forms. It is output as an onclick on the rendered tag.

Here is working code:

@using (Html.BeginForm("Upload", "FileManager", null, FormMethod.Post, 
               new { enctype = "multipart/form-data", @class = "myform" }))
        {
            <label>File Upload</label>
            <input type="file" id="filename" name="filename" style="padding: 2px 5px"/>  
            <br />   
            <br />       
            <input type="submit" value="Upload File" style="padding: 2px 5px" 
              onclick="return validateUpload();" />
}

 <script type="text/javascript">
            function validateUpload()
            {
                if (!$("filename").val())                     
                {
                    alert("Please select an image to upload.");
                    return false;
                }
                return true;
            }
        </script>
        }
    </script>
