Change the FileSelect Button Caption and Disable It During Selection


Product FileSelect for Blazor,
Loader for Blazor


This KB article answers the following questions:

  • How to change the FileSelect's button caption, when the user selects or uploads multiple files?
  • How to disable the FileSelect component during upload of multiple files?
  • How to notify the user about the status of the process during the upload?
  • How to prevent the user from disrupting the upload process?


To achieve this configuration, change the Enabled parameter of the FileSelect component to false, change its button caption, and re-render the component during the OnSelect event. However, file selection is a synchronous operation that waits for the files to be uploaded, and this prevents the re-rendering during the process. To work around this limitation, include another asynchronous operation in the handler of the OnSelect event. This async operation will change the button caption, disable the FileSelect, and re-render it. The described approach is shown in the example below.

OnSelect disables the FileSelect and changes the button caption.

<div class="row">
    <div class="col-4">
        <TelerikFileSelect OnSelect="@OnSelect" Enabled="@(!IsUploadingFile)">
                <TelerikLoader Visible="@IsUploadingFile" />
                <TelerikSvgIcon Icon="@SvgIcon.Upload" />
                @(IsUploadingFile ? "Uploading...please wait" : "Upload")
@code {
    private bool IsUploadingFile { get; set; }

    private async Task OnSelect(FileSelectEventArgs args)
        _ = await Task.Delay(100).ContinueWith(async (task) =>
         IsUploadingFile = true;

         await InvokeAsync(() => { StateHasChanged(); });

         await Task.Delay(2000);
         IsUploadingFile = false;
         await InvokeAsync(() => { StateHasChanged(); });
