I've had to define triggers to make the ASP fileupload to work inside an updatepanel. It may be something similar with the Ajax version.

 <Triggers>
                <asp:PostBackTrigger ControlID="btnUpload"  />
                <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="btnProcessData" />
            </Triggers>

Here is a full code example:

The UpdatePanel and FileUpload processes don't like to work together, so you have to make them work by using the triggers.

If you remove the UpdatePanel and your fileupload process works, you need to follow the example on the link that I supplied. It details how to define the Triggers section and set postbacks to work within the updatepanel.

You can remove the UpdatePanel. You don't have anything in there that requires an asynchronous postback anyway.

My point is...I don't want to create another button for file upload because ajaxfileupload already have one.

If you leave it as is it doesn't work because the FileUpload control always thinks it is empty when placed inside an UpdatePanel.

If you remove the UpdatePanel, you can leave the FileUpload Control alone. Unless someone has found another way around this problem, your options are to remove the UpdatePanel or add triggers with extra buttons.

I have searched a lot on this subject and I normally use the triggers because I will have a label to display success or failure of the upload. But I do sometimes put the FileUpload outside of the UpdatePanel. It really depends on what is necessary in each situation.
