Uploading Multiple Files by Dynamically generated FileUpload Control in c#.Net

Uploading Multiple Files by Dynamically generated FileUpload Control in c#.Net 

Introduction

In web application we generally need to upload multiple files at a time. Here in this example we will dynamically decide and generate FileUpload Control to browse number of files we need to upload on server.

We have also put validation on File Upload:

1.      Empty file Check (Length=0)

2.      Limiting maximum size of File to upload.

3.      Type of file to upload.

 

JavaScript  for Multiple FileUpload Control. Add this in the Head Tag of Source Page.

<script type = "text/javascript">

    var counter = 0;

    function AddFileUpload() {

 

 

        var div = document.createElement('DIV');

        div.innerHTML = '<input id="file' + counter + '" name = "file' + counter +

                     '" type="file" />' +

                     '<input id="Button' + counter + '" type="button" ' +

                     'value="Remove" onclick = "RemoveFileUpload(this)" />';

 

 

        document.getElementById("FileUploadContainer").appendChild(div);

        counter++;

    }

 

 

    function RemoveFileUpload(div) {

        document.getElementById("FileUploadContainer").removeChild(div.parentNode);

 

 

    }

</script>
