How to Preserve Upload Configuration

Preserving UploadConfiguration

Initially the default value of PersistConfiguration property is false. However, by setting it to true, the UploadConfiguration property can be persisted through postbacks via ControlState(only in case the UploadConfiguration property is not null).

note

The ControlState property allows you to persist property information that is specific to a control and cannot be turned off like the ViewState property for instance. Use the control state only for small amount of critical data that is essential for the control across postbacks. The control state should not be used as an alternative to view state.

The following code snippets demonstrate how it can be used:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    //It is possible to set PersistConfiguration propety from the markup and form the code behind
    RadAsyncUpload1.PersistConfiguration = true;
    Button1.Click += new EventHandler(Button1_Click);
    if (!IsPostBack)
    {
        SampleAsyncUploadConfiguration config =
             RadAsyncUpload1.CreateDefaultUploadConfiguration<SampleAsyncUploadConfiguration>();
        config.UserID = 1;
        config.UserName = "TelerikUser";
        RadAsyncUpload1.UploadConfiguration = config;
    }
}

void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    var uploadConfiguration = (SampleAsyncUploadConfiguration)RadAsyncUpload1.UploadConfiguration;
    Label1.Text = uploadConfiguration.UserID.ToString();
    Label2.Text = uploadConfiguration.UserName;
}
...

[Serializable]
public class SampleAsyncUploadConfiguration : IAsyncUploadConfiguration
{
    public int UserID { get; set; }
    public string UserName { get; set; }

    public string TargetFolder { get; set; }
    public string TempTargetFolder { get; set; }
    public int MaxFileSize { get; set; }
    public TimeSpan TimeToLive { get; set; }
}           
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    'It is possible to set PersistConfiguration propety from the markup and form the code behind
    RadAsyncUpload1.PersistConfiguration = True
    If Not IsPostBack Then
        Dim config As SampleAsyncUploadConfiguration = RadAsyncUpload1.CreateDefaultUploadConfiguration(Of SampleAsyncUploadConfiguration)()
        config.UserID = 1
        config.UserName = "TelerikUser"
        RadAsyncUpload1.UploadConfiguration = config
    End If
End Sub

Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    Dim uploadConfiguration = CType(RadAsyncUpload1.UploadConfiguration, SampleAsyncUploadConfiguration)
    Label1.Text = uploadConfiguration.UserID.ToString()
