Migrating from RadUpload for ASP.NET AJAX to RadAsyncUpload

To migrate a web application from RadUpload for ASP.NET AJAX to the new RadAsyncUpload, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Make sure that you have registered the handler's URL in the web.config. This is done by using the Smart Tag of the RadAsyncUpload.

  2. Replace the old declaration:


    <telerik:RadUpload …></telerik:RadUpload> 

    with the new one:


    <telerik:RadAsyncUpload RenderMode="Lightweight" …></telerik:RadAsyncUpload> 
  3. You can leave all old properties intact.

  4. [Optional] Set the TemporaryFolder property. In most cases it can be any folder. There are two exceptions:

  • In medium trust this must be a folder that is inside your application folder

  • In a web farm environment, the TemporaryFolder as well as the TargetFolder properties must be set to folders located on a shared drive.
