            <div class="demo-section k-header">
                <input type="file" name="files" id="files" />
            </div>

            <script id="fileTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-template">
                <span class='k-progress'></span>
                <div class='file-wrapper'>
                    <h4 class='file-heading file-name-heading'>Name: #=name#</h4>
                    <h4 class='file-heading file-size-heading'>Size: #=size# bytes</h4>
                    <h4 class='file-heading'>Uploaded by:</h4>
                    <select class="info">
                        <option>Developer</option>
                        <option>Support</option>
                        <option>QA</option>
                        <option>HR</option>
                    </select>
                    <button type='button' class='k-upload-action'></button>
                </div>
            </script>

            <script>
                $(document).ready(function () {
                    $("#files").kendoUpload({
                        multiple: true,
                        async: {
                            saveUrl: "save",
                            removeUrl: "remove",
                            autoUpload: false

                        upload: onUpload
                    });
                });

                function onSelect(e){
                  var upload = this;
