Async Upload

In this demo, the FileUploader component is configured for asynchronous upload. Use the File types drop-down menu to select acceptable file types for the Open file dialog. The Upload mode drop-down menu allows you to specify whether the file is uploaded on a button click or instantly after the file has been selected. In addition, you can specify whether the FileUploader allows multiple file selection.

Backend API
$(() => { const fileUploader = $('#file-uploader').dxFileUploader({ multiple: false, accept: '*', value: [], uploadMode: 'instantly', uploadUrl: '', onValueChanged(e) { const files = e.value; if (files.length > 0) { $('#selected-files .selected-item').remove(); $.each(files, (i, file) => { const $selectedItem = $('<div />').addClass('selected-item'); $selectedItem.append( $('<span />').html(`Name: ${}<br/>`), $('<span />').html(`Size ${file.size} bytes<br/>`), $('<span />').html(`Type ${file.type}<br/>`), $('<span />').html(`Last Modified Date: ${file.lastModifiedDate}`), ); $selectedItem.appendTo($('#selected-files')); }); $('#selected-files').show(); } else { $('#selected-files').hide(); } }, }).dxFileUploader('instance'); $('#accept-option').dxSelectBox({ inputAttr: { 'aria-label': 'Accept Option' }, dataSource: [ { name: 'All types', value: '*' }, { name: 'Images', value: 'image/*' }, { name: 'Videos', value: 'video/*' }, ], valueExpr: 'value', displayExpr: 'name', value: '*', onValueChanged(e) { fileUploader.option('accept', e.value); }, }); $('#upload-option').dxSelectBox({ items: ['instantly', 'useButtons'], value: 'instantly', inputAttr: { 'aria-label': 'Upload Option' }, onValueChanged(e) { fileUploader.option('uploadMode', e.value); }, }); $('#multiple-option').dxCheckBox({ value: false, text: 'Allow multiple files selection', onValueChanged(e) { fileUploader.option('multiple', e.value); }, }); });

To select files, click the Select file button or drop the files directly on the component. If the upload mode is «useButtons», you must click the Upload button or a corresponding button for each file to initiate upload.


This demo does not actually upload files. To upload files, assign the URL of a page providing server scenarios for saving uploaded files to the uploadUrl configuration property of the component.
