Use Compact UI Mode

The following example demonstrates how to hide the selected files for upload from the user interface and render only the Select files button without additional UI elements in the Kendo UI Upload.

     #wrapper {
       display: inline-block;

     .k-upload {
       border-width: 0;

     .k-upload .k-dropzone {
       padding: 0;

     .k-upload-status-total {
       display: none;

   <div id="wrapper">
           <input name="files" id="files" type="file" />

       $(document).ready(function() {
           async: {
             saveUrl: "save",
             removeUrl: "remove"
           showFileList: false

         //Removing the "Drop files here message"
         $("#files").closest(".k-upload").find(".k-dropzone em").remove();
