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>

Open in new window


- MVC -
@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" />

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>

I wasn't sure if 'OnClick' would work like that, I'll let you know...

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>
